Custody options for Virginia parents

The end of a marriage is a difficult time for the individuals who have chosen to legally part ways. But, regardless of their financial situation or their portfolio of property, if the individuals share children, they will undoubtedly experience some trepidation and sadness over the dissolution of their kids' family home. This post will briefly touch on some of the child custody options Virginia parents may learn about as they work to end their marriages in divorce.

Fault may serve as the grounds for a Virginia divorce

The end of a marriage can be hard on a Harrisonburg couple and when the parties decide that it is time to file for divorce, they must meet certain requirements to move their case forward in the courts of Virginia. There are jurisdictional matters that must be satisfied and the filing party also must select a basis for their divorce. In Virginia, a party may file a no-fault divorce, if they have been separated from their spouse for at least a year. If not, they may use one of the state's recognized fault grounds to end their marriage.
