In addition, she is certified as a mediator by the Virginia Supreme Court at the Circuit Court Family level, and is a trained Collaborative Law Practitioner.

Through mediation you have the ability to craft creative solutions, and have the flexibility to try out different custody and visitation arrangements for limited periods of time before reaching a final binding resolution. Most mediations with Rachel L. Virk, P.C. are complete after approximately three sessions of approximately two hours each.
Whether your case involves the valuation of a professional practice or a business, an analysis of partially marital and partially separate vested and non-vested stock options, investment properties, military benefits, defined benefit and defined contribution retirement accounts, and/or all the important concerns regarding your children, mediation can work for you.
In fact, it can work better than giving control over your life to a Judge who will only see a snapshot in time of your situation, before making decisions which will profoundly and forever affect the rest of your and your family’s lives.
