Fairfax County Uncontested Divorce Lawyer

Legal Counsel for an Amicable Divorce in Virginia

An uncontested divorce avoids the nasty, expensive legal battle. But a “do-it-yourself” divorce can create other problems.

If you are committed to an amicable divorce, the law firm of Jonathan Y. Short, P.C., can help you resolve those last few disagreements and ensure that your financial and legal interests are protected. This is not a high-cost endeavor, and the peace of mind is worth it.

I have practiced divorce and family law in Arlington, Alexandria and Fairfax County for over 25 years. Contact me today to arrange a consultation about:

  • Uncontested divorce
  • Property settlement agreements (married or unmarried)
  • Parenting agreements (child custody and visitation)
  • Modifications of custody or child support
  • Domestic abuse allegations
  • Adoption, paternity or other family law matters

A Smooth Uncontested Divorce

If you have no kids and agree on all other matters, you can be divorced in 60 days (after a six-month separation). But many couples who thought they resolved everything and got divorced without legal counsel end up in litigation, which costs more in the long run.

I have experience in mediating property settlement agreements. I address the details that often get overlooked: Who pays the mortgage? What if you sell the house? What about retirement funds? Who is responsible for loans and credit card debt? I help couples hammer out a fair arrangement and carefully draw up the papers to avoid any ambiguity later.

Even if children are involved, there does not have to be a court battle. I will mediate those issues, too, and make sure that your parenting plan is workable, spelled out and passes muster with the court.

To explore an uncontested divorce, or for legal counsel or representation in a less-than-amicable dispute, contact my Alexandria office at 703-465-5505. I practice in Arlington, Prince William and Loudoun counties, and I accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
