What Does The Divorce Process Look Like?

It is possible in Virginia to have both a fault and no-fault divorce. Fault divorces involve acts that warrant divorce and may lead to further legal action such as adultery or a felony conviction. Regardless of which type of divorce you file and whether you have a signed agreement in advance of filing for the divorce, the steps will be similar:

  • File your complaint for divorce
  • Notify your spouse with official complaint copies
  • The served spouse should respond with a an answer filed with the court.
  • Uncontested divorce: Generally completed via affidavits filed with the court, without the need for a court appearance.
  • Contested divorce: Issues are resolved by a trial with a judge’s ruling
  • Final Order of Divorce (either incorporating the parties’ agreement or the judge’s ruling)

Wherever you are in the process, our team can take the reins and guide you through this tough time with apt and efficient legal counsel.
