4 commonly asked questions about divorce in Virginia

Ending a marriage is rarely an easy or simple task. Divorcing couples face confusion and hardships regarding property division, custody and court procedures. Understanding Virginia divorce law gives divorcing couples the clarity they need to understand the process and get through it more easily. Here are the answers to some common questions about divorcing in Virginia.

Tip: Review the tax consequences of your divorce settlement

Property division can be a stumbling block in divorces where one spouse took a more active role in managing the marital finances. With the help of an experienced attorney, a forensic inventory of the estate can be prepared, and the task of dividing tangible and intangible assets can begin.

When your ex is continually hostile

The break-up of a marriage is a very emotional experience. So, it's not surprising that a certain amount of hostility can go along with it. Ideally, this hostility would never get to unhealthy levels and would fade over time. However, this ideal situation isn't always what happens. For example, sometimes, a person finds that their ex-spouse continues to act in a hostile manner towards them long after the initial split.

Must you testify against your spouse in divorce litigation?

The prospect of your spouse testifying against you in a divorce case may be unsettling. Yet for divorcing couples that cannot reach a settlement on one or more material divorce issues, turning to the court for resolution may be the only solution to deadlock.

Hasty decisions that could negatively affect your divorce

The time between a couple or a spouse deciding to divorce and actually finalizing a divorce can be a minefield of bad decisions if people are not careful. In fact, you could be doing some serious damage to your future and your family if you act without thinking in the days, weeks and months leading up to your divorce.
