Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce – Solutions Crafted to Meet Your Goals and Concerns

At Aloupas Law P.L.L.C., we recognize the value of an amicable settlement of your divorce issues which permits you to seek solutions on your terms rather than those imposed by a judge with limited understanding of your situation. While we recognize that negotiation of a settlement can create stable and lasting solutions, sometimes the other party makes reaching such a resolution impossible. Lu Aloupas, Esq.takes the time to understand your situation and long-term objectives to facilitate the best possible approach to your family law dispute. There are certain types of divorce issues that typically require litigation, such as child custody cases involving domestic violence, allegations of substance abuse or child abuse. While Virginia law permits divorce to be granted on both a fault and no-fault basis, a fault based divorce, such as conviction of a felony, reasonable apprehension of bodily harm, adultery or other fault-based grounds also tend to result in more contentious litigation.

Dedicated and experienced Virginia divorce attorney Lu Aloupas can help you resolve your divorce or other family law matter amicably to avoid unnecessary litigation costs. When an appropriate resolution cannot be reached, our Virginia divorce law firm does not hesitate to zealously pursue litigation to seek the best possible outcome for our clients through tenacious advocacy, innovative legal strategies and artfully crafted documents.
