Preparing for divorce takes experience in Virginia

In our last blog post, we discussed two different types of divorce in Virginia: divorce from room and board and divorce from the bond of matrimony. That information might have shocked some of our readers, but it is a good example of how complex family law matters might be, even in the simplest of cases. Don't let complexity get you down. If you have a family law matter such as a divorce, we can help you handle it.

Getting a divorce isn't a fast process in Virginia. In fact, even a simple divorce in this state takes at least six months. That is because of the laws the state has regarding the time periods of a divorce. If you are divorcing your spouse, you might be able to get a divorce in that time period. If you have any areas of conflict, such as who gets the marital home or child custody matters, you might find that the divorce takes much longer.

It is important that you ensure you have all the information you need to make decisions throughout the divorce case. We can help you out by answering your questions. Whether you are going through a simple divorce with only a few assets or a complex divorce with considerable assets, we can help you make a plan and provide guidance on how your decisions can affect you.

Since divorce is already stressful, you don't want to add stress to the divorce by reacting aggressively during the negotiations or hearings. Instead, matters pertaining to the divorce should be handled in a calm manner that can help to keep the stress level to a minimum. We can help you to do just that by helping to ensure that you are ready for each step of the case.
