Equitable Division of Property and Assts

In Virginia, equitable distribution laws govern the way in which property and assets are divided. This means that marital property and assets are divided equally and fairly, but not necessarily 50-50. We can evaluate your situation and determine how to pursue the property and assets to which you are entitled. Marital debts are also divided throughout the course of dividing a couple's property and assets.

Spousal Support (Alimony)

Sometimes called alimony or spousal maintenance, spousal support is the amount of money paid from one spouse to the other in order to support the lifestyle to which the spouse had become accustomed to during the marriage. The courts take a number of factors into consideration when determining if spousal support is appropriate, such as the length of the marriage, age of the parties and each spouse's income-earning capacity.

Issues Involving Children

When a couple has children and is going through a divorce, they need to be mindful about how the resolutions may affect the children. This is especially important in child support, child custody and visitation matters. While child support is set by state guidelines and a formula, child custody and visitation are determined in the best interests of the child.
