Marital Separation Agreement
In Virginia, marital separation agreements – sometimes called property settlement agreements – play a vital role in helping to make the divorce process easier. Virginia does not have the official, legal status of “separated.” However, spouses must be separated 6 months or 12 months before they can file for divorce. The divorce is much simpler with the help of a marital agreement already in place.
I can help you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse create a settlement agreement that you can live with. I also offer a flat rate, responsive service, and thoughtful legal advice.
If you are getting married and would like to enter into a prenuptial agreement with your soon-to-be spouse, I can help you start your marriage off with the peace of mind of a solid, thoughtful agreement.
In Virginia, couples may file to divorce after 6 months of separation with a property settlement agreement (sometimes called marital separation agreement) if they have no children, or 12 months if the couple has children under 18.
An uncontested divorce refers to a divorce where the issues have been decided between the soon-to-be divorced couple and no issues need to be decided by the judge.
