Providing Compassionate Legal Representation

No two families are alike; when you work with me, you can rest assured knowing you will be given custom-tailored legal solutions designed to work best for you and your family. To file for divorce in Virginia, one spouse must have lived in the state for at least six months prior to filing. Virginia offers both no-fault and fault-based divorces.

Filing for No-Fault Divorce in Virginia

To qualify for No-fault divorce, you and your spouse must live apart for a period of at least one year without interruption before filing. There are exceptions to this rule, however, for married couples without minor children. In this case, you will only have to live apart uninterrupted for six months.

Fault Divorce

In order to file for a fault divorce in Virginia, you must prove one of the following:

  • Infidelity or other sexual acts outside of the marriage
  • Felony conviction
  • Willful abandonment or desertion
  • Fear of physical bodily harm

If you wish to file for a fault divorce, retaining a skilled Richmond divorce attorney is a must. An attorney can help gather the evidence you need to prove your fault grounds.
