Dedicated Attorney Practicing: Collaborative Divorce ◊ Child Custody ◊ Property Disputes ◊ Alternative Families
Going through a divorce can be one of the most difficult times of your life. You may be worried about how your assets will be divided, who gets custody of the children, whether you can survive financially or even how you will work with your ex-spouse as you continue to raise your children. I understand the stress that you are experiencing and I'm here to help you get through this separation with your dignity intact. Divorce can be a timely and costly process; I am here to help make it as quick and cost-effective as possible while ultimately helping you move on with your life.
My goal in all family law matters is to help you through the process in a personable manner, that is consistent with your principles. I have intentionally kept my office small, so I can devote all my energy and attention to every case. For a free initial consultation, contact my office or call me at 202-659-4420.
My Divorce Practice
At the office of attorney John C. Maginnis, III, I have over 30 years of experience handling divorce and family law matters for men and women throughout the District of Columbia, Maryland and Northern Virginia.
I focus my entire practice on family law, providing counsel in:
- Collaborative divorce proceedings. As a certified collaborative divorce attorney, I help individuals resolve custody, visitation, support and property matters without the intervention of the courts. I will work with you, your spouse, opposing counsel and outside experts to craft solutions that minimize the time and expense of divorce, and that provide the best long-term results.
- Child custody disputes. I will help you fashion custody agreements that are in the best interests of your minor children while protecting your relationships with them. In all custody situations, I focus on minimizing the emotional harm to your children. I will not participate in any effort to use determinations of child custody as a way to punish your ex-spouse.
- Marital property disputes. I will work with you to equitably divide the debts and assets of your marital estate, including real estate, personal property, retirement accounts, investments and business assets.
Alternative Family Representation
I also provide experienced advocacy to individuals in non-traditional relationships, including domestic partnerships and same-sex unions. I provide representation to alternative families in the same way as I approach traditional family law matters.
