Richmond Separation Lawyer

Our Divorce Attorney Explains It All

In Virginia, when two spouses are no longer living together, or are choosing to “live apart”, they have entered into a separation. A separation can occur even if the couple has not signed a Separation Agreement. Unlike many states in the country, Virginia does not grant “legal separations”. As a Richmond divorce attorney, if you and your spouse are ready to separate from each other, I can explain to you what that entails and how you can ensure that you are protected in the event of a divorce.

The Separation Agreement Process

A couple that is choosing to live apart can use a Separation Agreement, also known as a Property Settlement Agreements, to establish legalities of their separation. Details that are discussed or decided upon in a Separation Agreement can also later on play a role in the divorce process.

Factors of a Separation Agreement include:

Separation Agreements are considered law binding. Except for the decisions involving children, which can always be changed or modified, the aspects of a Separation Agreement are considered permanent. This agreement is often considered as a contract later on during the divorce process and in court. If you choose to use a Separation Agreement, it is important that you understand the details and factors that can play a part of your agreement and your future.
