Domestic issues that arise within family law can be very sensitive, requiring a legal team that is of the highest quality and professionalism. During a divorce or a child custody matter, you and your children have various interests that require protection, including assets and property, visitation, and child support. Sometimes there are legal issues that you are not even aware of. It may be beneficial to speak with a Washington DC family lawyer who can articulate the type of future you and your family desire. Finding a skilled family lawyer who understands the unique needs of each client is the best first step toward resolving any legal issues you may have.

Negotiation vs. Litigation

Litigation is always an option in family law cases, but it is not the only option. These days, there are many creative solutions available for handling domestic legal issues. Many couples are fortunate enough to negotiate resolutions without adversarial proceedings or hostility. During a divorce, couples may collaborate to draft separation agreements or contracts which articulate the rights and responsibilities of each spouse regarding finances, child care, and more. Couples also have the option of mediation, a voluntary process during which both spouses work together with a neutral third party (mediator) to reach resolutions on matters such as divorce, child support, or custody/visitation. There are several other collaborative options for family law matters, all of which can be explained in depth by a Washington DC family lawyer.

When communications break down or when collaborative methods are just not an option, litigation is necessary. Litigation provides a legally binding resolution which both parties are required to follow. Sometimes, litigation is the only way to get the other party to begin negotiating at all.
