Divorce Matters We Handle

There are often things in a divorce that you hadn’t even thought of requiring resolution. Is your spouse going to cooperate with the divorce or not? How will you divide assets? If you have kids, what will your parenting arrangement be? There are solutions to all of these divorce issues and more. We can help you discover them together.

Please contact our divorce lawyers in Virginia Beach to discuss your concerns and priorities involving:

  • Child custody and visitation arrangements that serve the best interests of your children and do justice to your rights as a loving, responsible parent
  • Child support, spousal support, and property and debt division orders that give all parties a fair chance to move forward without severe hardship
  • Your specific concerns surrounding your military divorce, including rights to valuable military benefits

Is Virginia a No-Fault State For Divorce?

Yes, the state of Virginia is considered a no-fault state. A spouse in Virginia who wants to divorce their partner can do so. This type of divorce is referred to as a "no-fault" divorce since neither party has to present proof of wrongdoing. The couple must have been apart for at least six months in order to qualify for a no-fault divorce.

Virginia divorce law is a complex area when it comes to grounds for divorce, waiting periods, family support, and many other issues. Proceeding without qualified legal counsel can lead to mistakes and regrets. Acting only on the advice of family members or friends is a serious risk.
