Given the percentage of marriages that end in divorce, anyone could be affected by a separation or divorce. Dissolution of marriage is often linked to property rights and financial issues and can pose complex legal problems, especially when children are involved. Couples who wish to separate when they begin divorce have the opportunity to negotiate a separation agreement from Virginia Marital. By agreeing to use this document, both parties agree to live separately and lead separate lives. The agreement resolves issues such as debt sharing, property distribution, child care, custody and visitation. Although separation offers an “impeccable” grounds for divorce, fault can still be a problem when seeking spousal assistance (support) or a factor in determining the division of marital property. In addition, a judge is free to grant a divorce at fault when there is “no fault” of reasons for separation, conversely, a judge is free to grant a “not guiltyness” even if there are reasons for error. Any separation agreement focuses on provisions to resolve the main problems between the parties: property and debt, spos assistance, childcare, visitation and assistance, etc. However, separation agreements generally also have a number of standard provisions that can have very interesting legal consequences. These “boiler plate” rules deal with things like: freedom of interference; Divorce without fail; Legal fees; Enforcement of the law Publication of financial information Reconciliation; Amending the agreement And much more. For more information, please see the provisions of the boiler platform in the Virginia Separation Agreements.

If there are errors in your separation case, but you do not want a divorce for moral or religious reasons, “separate maintenance” can be an effective route. This Virginia law gives the court the power to decide on child welfare and visitations. However, a separate interview does not allow the court to share property. Graham Law Firm`s personalized advice can help you decide if separate maintenance is the right option for you.
