At Duff Kronfeld & Marquardt P.C., we understand the emotional and financial difficulties you face with a family law dispute. For more than 30 years, our firm in Fairfax has assisted individuals and families throughout Northern Virginia with all matters of family law, including:

  • Divorce: If you are facing a divorce, it is necessary to have a skilled lawyer at your side who will help ensure that you do not inadvertently give up important rights. Many issues may also arise after your divorce is finalized, requiring legal help.
  • Child Custody and Visitation: It is important to address issues of child custody, visitation and relocation head-on so that there are no surprises later.
  • Support: Issues of child support and alimony - also called spousal support - often require an analysis of financial information from both partners and application of Virginia guidelines. Future support modifications may also be necessary if your circumstances change.
  • Property division: Dividing your assets and debts following a long marriage can be quite complicated. We will help ensure that your assets are divided equitably and accurately, providing you with what you need to face your new future.
  • Your rights: Unmarried partners, stepparents and grandparents have rights after relationships end, the extent of which depend on the unique circumstances of each claim. We can also assist you with issues of domestic abuse, helping protect you and your children from harm.
  • Future planning: A divorce or remarriage will require changes to your future plans. We will provide you with information and guidance related to matters of estate planning in preparation for or following your divorce.

While litigation is not always avoidable, we will help you achieve timely and cost-effective results through negotiation or mediation whenever possible. If an acceptable resolution cannot be reached in your case, our highly skilled trial lawyers will fight for your rights in court, appealing your case to a higher court if advisable, to get you the best result possible.
