Leesburg Divorce Attorneys
What is Virginia’s Divorce Process?
When you are going through a divorce – whether you and your spouse agree on the terms or not – you should still speak to an attorney. There are many elements of a divorce. If you do not understand how they can impact you, you may find yourself at a disadvantage. Once the divorce is finalized, you may not be able to change the terms. We will guide you through your divorce, making sure you understand how the terms of your divorce could impact you.
Some of the issues we will cover are:
- Property division, including division of retirement assets, real estate, investments, vehicles, and other marital assets
- Child custody, including decisions about legal and physical custody
- Child support based on where the child spends time, a calculation of income from all sources, and various other factors
- Alimony or spousal support based on an evaluation of each spouse's finances, earning abilities, the length of the marriage, and various other factors
Many divorcing spouses do not fully understand the tax ramifications they will encounter after a divorce. We want to make sure you are looked after in your divorce. This means we will factor in any tax consequences such as capital gains and income tax when negotiating on your behalf. Wherever possible, we will do what we can to minimize your tax exposure.
Experienced Divorce Legal Counsel
During a divorce, when finances are already strained, expending precious resources hiring an attorney can seem overwhelming. What many people do not understand is that hiring an excellent attorney does not need to cost a fortune. What is needed is an attorney with the creativity and skill to help you achieve a resolution that works for you.
In Virginia, even an uncontested divorce, where both parties agree on all the terms, can take over six months to finalize. In a contested divorce scenario, where both parties cannot agree on terms, the divorce process can take significantly longer. In both scenarios, having an experienced Leesburg divorce attorney on your side can help you save time and money in the long run.
