No two divorce cases are the same, though every married couple who wishes to end their marriage must follow specific procedures under Virginia law. The law requires spouses to meet residency requirements and cite grounds for their divorce, which can be based on fault (such as adultery) or separation for six months (or one year if you have minor children). Our divorce attorneys in Montgomery County MD will evaluate your circumstances and help you decide which grounds are the most beneficial for your case.
You and your spouse must resolve certain issues for the court to grant your divorce. Every couple will need to decide on the equitable distribution of all marital property, assets, and debts. Spouses who share minor children will need to address child support and custody arrangements. Some couples need to determine whether one spouse should pay alimony to the other for a period of time.
Some spouses can agree on resolutions with negotiation between their attorneys, while others may need mediation or even litigation in court to resolve one or more issues. Our attorneys work to resolve all relevant matters in your case as efficiently as possible, and we also have experienced litigators who are ready to go to court when needed.
