Not all Virginia divorces will include negotiations or hearings concerning alimony. This is because not all marriages end with one party financially disadvantaged when compared to the other. When one party to a marriage has given up their opportunity to earn an income or put their own career on hold in support of their partner and their family, they may have grounds on which to assert a request for spousal support.
Immigration has been an incredibly controversial topic in the news over the course of the last year. There is no way for a Virginia resident to avoid the ongoing debate over how to allow individuals to enter the United States and what to do with them if they arrive through illegal channels. However, the topic of immigration is much larger than just border controversies and family reunifications. Immigration law includes the application for and receipt of visas for many non-U.S. citizens.
