Warrenton Divorce Lawyer

Ending a marriage can be one of the most emotionally challenging times in your life. Yet, it is also a time when there are many pragmatic issues that you must attend to.

In order of importance, generally, they include:

  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Property division
  • Spousal support

Apprising you of these matters and helping you arrive at fair resolution, in or out of court, is what Mark B. Williams, PLC is here to do.

Fault and No-fault Divorce

Parties can go their separate ways without a reason. But if one party has committed adultery or acts of cruelty, neglected the other, or committed a serious crime, this may affect whether spousal support is awarded, and other aspects of the decree.

Property Division

In Virginia, the courts have a standard called "equitable distribution" in dividing property. Rather than a strict 50-50 split of property and assets, courts take various factors into account in attempt to arrive at a "fair" resolution. Your ability to earn income, your education, and what you brought into the marriage are considered, among other things.

Whatever was acquired from the date of marriage until the date of separation constitutes the marital property, and must be divided. Gifts to one party only from someone other than their spouse, and items and accounts owned by one party prior to the wedding are separate property and may be kept by that party.

However, when moneys are commingled, for example, funds from your bank account were used to open a common account, it becomes complicated to divide. Before the court can divide the marital property we must establish what is your own, separate property.
