Back in July, a major issue was brought to the attention of the U.S. Department of Justice regarding the practice of suspending driver's licenses here in Virginia. According to a lawsuit filed on behalf of roughly 1 million Virginians, police in our state have been suspending and even revoking residents' driver's licenses simply because they were unable to pay fines or court fees.
Some Virginia residents who are getting a divorce may be concerned about asset depletion. This occurs when one spouse spends marital assets as a way to prevent the other spouse from getting them. This can be a particular problem if the spouse who is spending has a high income and the other spouse does not work outside the home. While the spending spouse can easily recover the money after divorce, the other spouse might leave the marriage with no assets.
