Divorce in Virginia
Divorces are often difficult and can be complex and time consuming. In addition to the process of filing for divorce, spouses need to consider related issues, such as dividing assets, child custody, and spousal and child support. There may also be additional considerations if the divorce involves high net worth, military, or same sex spouses. If children are involved, the divorce process may be more complicated, as issues such as child custody and child support must be decided.
If spouses are more amicable during a divorce, there may be options available to make the process speedier and less expensive. For example, if spouses agree on all aspects of a divorce, they may file for an uncontested divorce. Spouses in an uncontested divorce can typically avoid having to go to court by requesting to have a hearing by deposition or affidavit and submitting additional documents. Spouses can also pursue a mediated or collaborative divorce, rather than litigating these issues in court.
