When you are going through a divorce, whether you and your spouse agree on the terms or not, you should still speak to an attorney. There are many elements of a divorce.

Make Sure You Understand How the Terms of Your Divorce Will Effect You

We will guide you through your divorce, making sure you understand how the terms of your divorce could impact you. Some of the issues we will cover are:

  • Property division, including division of retirement assets, real estate, investments, vehicles and other marital assets
  • Child custody, including decisions about legal and physical custody
  • Child support based on where the child spends time, a calculation of income from all sources as well as various other factors
  • Alimony or spousal support based up an evaluation of each spouse's finances, earning abilities, the length of the marriage and various other factors.

Many divorcing spouses do not fully understand the tax ramifications they will encounter after a divorce. We want to make sure you are looked after in your divorce. This means we will factor in any tax consequences such as capital gains and income tax when negotiating on your behalf. Wherever possible we will do what we can to minimize your tax exposure.

Timeline of Your Divorce

It is natural to want to complete a divorce as quickly as possible. In Virginia, even an uncontested divorce, where both parties agree on all of the terms, it can take over six months to complete a divorce. In a contested divorce scenario, where both parties cannot agree on terms, the divorce process can take significantly longer. In both scenarios, having a strong attorney on your side can help you save time and money in the long run.
