It’s impossible to underestimate the impact a divorce can have upon one’s life. Everything dear in your life is at stake, including your home, savings and in particular the future of your children. Mistakes during the divorce process can be particularly costly. Even if circumstances can be remedied during an appeal, this can turn out to be time-consuming and expensive.
How Divorce Is Handled In Virginia
In our state, there is a partial or qualified divorce (divorce from bed and board) where couples remain legally separated and not allowed to remarry. There is also divorce from the bond of matrimony where severance of the entire marriage occurs.
Virginia also has fault divorce where the grounds for the basis of filing concern matters such as adultery or cruelty. No-fault divorce occurs where two individuals are living separately for a period of time and then wish to end their marriage. Courts base the length of the required legal separation upon whether the couple has minor children through birth or adoption.
The approach the lawyers at Van Hooser, Aguirre & Armistead, P.C., will take in any circumstance is based upon the individual facts. As no two divorces are alike, our lawyers address clients’ needs by examining closely the personal wishes of each of them. In certain cases, this means we will take an aggressive approach, and in other instances, it may mean taking a softer approach. We are always prepared to handle each matter on a case-by-case basis.
