The end of a marriage is often stressful and emotionally challenging. During separation and divorce, we can be the shelter in the storms that arise by helping you navigate the issues you face as a result of dividing households. In Virginia, there are options when it comes to divorcing your spouse.

Property Settlement Agreement: A Property Settlement Agreement is a formal document that can be written to formalize a separation agreement between you and spouse.

  • Real Estate
  • Personal Property
  • Automobiles
  • Debts
  • Retirement Accounts
  • Investment Accounts
  • Bank Accounts
  • If needed: Custody, Visitation, and Child Support
  • Spousal Support

Contested Divorce: In Virginia, a contested divorce can be filed alleging various fault based grounds against your spouse. If you and your spouse are unable to agree on the division of property, spousal support or custody and visitation of your children then the Virginia Court will decide these issues after the presentation of evidence.

Uncontested Divorce: In Virginia, you can file for divorce after being separated from your spouse for 12 months. If you and your spouse do not have children together and you have entered into a formal separation agreement / property settlement agreement, then you can file for divorce after 6 months of separation.
