When Virginia residents see divorce on the horizon, they may have more questions than answers, or so it usually seems. After all, a divorce is a significant event in any person’s life, severing a relationship that most thought would last a lifetime.

When such a significant legal event comes up, getting the right answers to divorce questions is crucial.

For many parents who are getting a divorce, their minor children are the focus of the case. They want to know how child custody will be decided, or how much child support they will either pay or receive. They want to know what visitation plans might look like, or whether “virtual” visitation — the use of electronic communication — will be part of their plans.

For others, property division and alimony are the key issues in their divorce case. We all work hard for the money we earn, and no one wants to feel like they were treated unfairly when it comes to splitting assets, funds and debts. In terms of alimony, most people want to know how much they will need to pay or how much they will receive, and for how long.

Although the facts of any given divorce case will differ greatly, the issues that must be addressed in these types of cases are usually the same. At our law firm, we work with Virginia residents to attempt to show them how the specific facts of their case will fit in with the applicable law of divorce cases in this state.
