What property rights are created by marriage and divorce?

The end of a marriage typically raises a variety of strong emotions, including sadness, bitterness, anger, resentment and depression. Marital dissolution also usually has financial implications for both spouses and any children involved, with issues such as spousal support, child support, and property division to be determined and then finalized in a divorce decree. As an equitable distribution state, Virginia requires that marital property and assets be fairly divided at the time of divorce.

How child support is collected in Virginia

Virginia divorce may spell the end of a relationship, but it still holds the promise of a new future for couples. However, for children, the term "divorce" is surrounded by a sense of insecurity. Payment of child support is a serious concern in many Virginia cases and throughout the nation. Child support needs to be paid by the non-custodial parent after a divorce, but the terms and conditions of this support can vary.

The grounds for divorce in Virginia-Part II

Divorce can be a tumultuous experience for Virginia residents. Because the number of Virginia residents heading for divorce is reportedly seeing a sharp rise, divorce cases are often an issue that end up before the Virginia courts. Two types of divorce in Virginia can be obtained: divorce from bed and board and divorce from matrimonial bond. While the former is partial, the latter is complete.

Virginia law on prenuptial agreements

Many residents of Virginia have mixed feelings about prenuptial agreements. Many find them to be unromantic, as if they signal the potential end of a marriage. Yet, everyone needs to understand that there is no guarantee that a marriage will last for an entire lifetime. Therefore, it is important to plan for the future in case a marriage breaks down.
