Depending on the circumstances of your divorce, the divorce process may be somewhat short (if the divorce is uncontested) or more drawn out (if the divorce is contested and disputes arise). But in general, the divorce and custody process involves the following steps:
A divorce is uncontested if both parties agree on all significant facets of the divorce, including child support, alimony, child custody, property division, and so on. Uncontested divorces tend to get resolved faster because there are no disputes to work through. In Virginia, many uncontested divorces can be resolved in weeks. Although, the paperwork takes a longer time to be processed by the Court and statutory waiting periods for filing may apply.
A divorce is contested if the two parties are disputing issues laid out in the settlement agreement. A divorce may also be contested if it is a fault divorce. The grounds for a fault divorce include abandonment or willful desertion, adultery, cruelty, and conviction of a crime (under certain circumstances).
When discussing major family law issues, such as divorce, spousal support, child support, child custody, visitation rights, and property division, legal proceedings can quickly become contentious. For example, you may believe that the amount your spouse is requesting in spousal support each month is unfair. In another scenario, your spouse may disagree with the proportion of parenting time you are requesting.
An experienced family attorney can help you navigate through these disputes in a way that puts your interests first. With an attorney present, you have a much better chance of resolving the matter expeditiously and in a way that benefits you. For example, if you and your spouse have a dispute over property division and you have not retained an attorney to represent your interests, you could end up with much less than you deserve.
Family law issues can also be quite complicated and having an attorney on hand to offer sound legal counsel can mean the difference between a good and bad outcome. A skilled family lawyer will have intimate knowledge of all state laws that apply to your legal issue.
