A divorce can be a stressful and traumatic experience. Good divorce lawyers can alleviate some of the emotional burden, while poor legal representation can make an already painful experience significantly worse. Our divorce attorneys will do the hard work necessary to give you peace of mind, by providing a steady hand throughout settlement negotiations and, if necessary, trial. Our experienced attorneys in Manassas, Fredericksburg and Fairfax handle every aspect of divorce cases in Virginia:
Contested Divorce. Virginia Code Section 20-91 allows for divorce on the following fault-based grounds in contested cases: (a) adultery; (b) sodomy or “buggery” committed outside the marriage; (c) the conviction of one spouse of a felony, in some situations; (d) cruelty (mental or physical); and (e) desertion (actual or “constructive”). Filing for divorce on one of these fault-based grounds may have implications for several issues in your case.

Child Custody, Visitation and Support. Where children are involved, custody and visitation are often the most emotional and difficult issues to be resolved. Each of our divorce lawyers is also a custody lawyer, meaning they are experienced in the special issues that arise in these cases. Once custody is determined, child support is generally awarded to the primary physical custodian by application of statewide child support guidelines. However, the child support question can become quite complicated in some instances, for example cases of voluntary underemployment.
Spousal Support. Spousal support issues arises in divorce case where the parties have been married for any substantial length of time and there is a significant gap in the parties’ incomes. In these cases, determination of a proper amount and duration of spousal support can become the toughest issue for the parties or the court to resolve. Our divorce attorneys are intimately familiar with the factors considered by courts in establishing both temporary and permanent spousal support, and with the important tax consequences which are often intertwined with spousal support.
