There is nothing easy about divorce. Spouses are usually racked with grief and an overwhelming sense of loss, and filled with anger at the same time. This combination of emotions can lead to bitter disputes and suboptimal conditions for finding reasonable compromises. With so much on the line, it never makes sense to handle your own divorce without legal advice. The Manassas divorce lawyers at the Virginia Family Law Center will work with you every step of the way to advance your goals and ensure that your rights are protected in child custody, division of assets, and more. 

Five Key Elements of Divorce

  • Property DivisionVirginia is an equitable division state, which means that all marital property is divided fairly during divorce. Marital property consists of virtually all assets and debt acquired during the course of the marriage. The median net worth of an American family is $121,000, according to Insider. Typical assets include real estate, bank accounts, retirement funds, pensions, and stocks, though even household items such as furniture will go through the equitable division process. 
  • Child CustodyThere are four types of child custody in Virginia: joint legal custody, joint physical custody, sole legal custody, and sole physical custody. If no child custody is granted to one of the parents, the court may award visitation rights to the non custodial parent. 
  • Child SupportChild support is the financial obligation due to their child and the custodial parent. Receiving a fair support award is vital to a child’s development and long term success. Just 43.5% of custodial parents receive the full amount of child support due to them, according to the Census. We can help you obtain a fair child support obligation, and ensure that it is upheld. 
  • Spousal Support/AlimonySpousal support is awarded based on the paying spouse’s ability to pay, the receiving spouse’s need, and other factors such as the sacrifices the receiving spouse made for the paying spouse’s career or education. In long term marriages, permanent spousal support may be awarded to the lower earning spouse. In short term marriages, temporary or rehabilitation spousal support may be awarded (though in the majority of divorces, no spousal support is awarded).
