Richmond Separation Lawyer
Our 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 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.
