Some divorces proceed with little conflict, especially when the spouses agree on the basic parameters of the divorce agreement and no unusual issues are in play. At the other end of the spectrum are marriages where the spouses cannot agree on anything and major disputes have to be resolved at every step.
If you are considering ending your marriage and you anticipate a high-conflict divorce, it is imperative that you have an advocate on your side with a comprehensive knowledge of Virginia’s divorce laws.
If the process of ending your marriage promises to be filled with stress and high emotion, selecting a family law firm with a compassionate staff and Virginia child custody attorneys who can bring calm logic to bear during the even the most challenging conflicts can help to make the entire process more bearable.
If your divorce involves issues that are outside the norm, be sure that you seek an attorney with experience and knowledge specific to your unique situation.
