Divorce & Family Law

Let’s be honest, divorce is a scary and emotionally traumatic process. Regardless of the reasons for the divorce, both parties are feeling overwhelmed, drained, hurt, angry, depressed or even relieved depending on the situation and reasons for it. This is not the time to try doing things without the help of an attorney that can help guide you through the process. No one gets married with the intent of getting divorced but we all know life happens and things don’t always work out as we plan them to.

What types of divorce are there?

Regardless of which type you are looking at, there are many factors that you have to consider that many people do not think about or just simply aren’t in the right mindset to think about during this period.

  • Grounds for divorce
  • Fault or no fault
  • Who’s paying for the divorce?
  • Military divorce
  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Child visitation
  • Step parent adoption
  • Insurance – health and life
  • Alimony
  • Property division
  • Grandparent’s rights
  • Paternity
  • Wills & Trusts
  • Name change
  • Debt
  • Domestic violence

And the list goes on…

Even in an uncontested divorce where no fault is given, these are still issues that must be addressed for a judge to consider awarding the divorce. The State of Virginia also places legal requirements such as waiting periods and residency requirements on even the simplest of divorce claims. Having an experienced and qualified divorce attorney on hand to help guide you through the process can not only help you keep your sanity but also your home and children.
