Divorce Litigation And Uncontested Divorce

The divorce process in Virginia can be complicated. We do everything we can to make it an efficient process while keeping your best interests at the center of our strategy. From uncontested divorce to complex divorce litigation, we customize our approach to the specific needs of our clients.

Seeking an Uncontested Divorce

When you and your spouse can reach an agreement about all issues pertaining to your divorce, from property division to child custody, we can help you move forward with an uncontested divorce under state law. This can be quicker than a contested divorce.

Dividing Marital Property

Virginia is an equitable distribution state. All marital property gets distributed between spouses in a manner that the court determines to be fair. Our attorneys will discuss the specific factors the court will consider in your case and can help to ensure you receive an equitable settlement.

Child Custody and the Best Interests of the Child Standard in Virginia

Virginia recognizes legal and physical custody of children when parents divorce or separate. We frequently work with families who need assistance with child custody disputes, which are resolved based on what is in the child’s best interests. Virginia courts use the “best interests of the child” standard to determine custody.

Military & Federal Employee Divorces

Virginia is home to thousands of federal employees and military members who work in Washington D.C. and the surrounding area. There are special circumstances for these employees that must be taken into consideration during divorce proceedings. More information regarding Military and Federal Employee Divorces can be found on our special considerations page.
