What Is Involved In A Virginia Divorce?
Divorces that are agreed to by both parties are called “uncontested.” Once you have agreed that divorce is the best option for you and your spouse, you and your attorneys must work together to agree on many aspects of the divorce, including:
- Child custody. Virginia law allows for sole custody by one parent or joint custody by both parents. We help you reach an agreement that represents your children’s best interests and create a parenting plan that determines visitation times and other important compromises.
- Child support. Agreeing on the amount of child support to be provided often leads to a fairer result than leaving this decision to a judge who does not know your family or understand each parent’s true financial situation.
- Property division. Virginia has complex rules for dividing property. Unless the parties agree on how to divide their assets, a judge will make decisions for them. This can lead to results that no one wants. Our attorneys are determined to help you reach an agreement.
When both sides do not agree to dissolve their marriage, or when they cannot agree on an aspect of the divorce such as child support, the case will go to a judge who will determine whether there are grounds for issuing a divorce. He or she will also decide on the proper way to divide your property and make decisions about child custody and support based on Virginia law. Our attorneys help you pursue an optimal result in court by decisively presenting your side of the case.
