"Separating" Within The Same House

Virginia law allows for a divorce based upon two parties having lived separate and apart from each other, continuously and without any "marital cohabitation," for a period of one year (12 months). This time requirement is reduced to six (6) months if two criteria are met: (1) the parties have no minor children; and (2) the parties have executed a written settlement agreement resolving all property and support issues.

Avoiding Court in Your Divorce Case

In most divorce cases, there are quite a few issues to be resolved, from division of property to child custody to financial support and everything in between. If any or all of these issues end up in front a Judge, the end result will inevitably be unpredictable. After all, a Judge is a complete stranger to the two parties who only hears testimony and reviews evidence for a few days. That complete stranger then makes decisions that will affect the divorcing couple for the rest of their lives. In fact, the only wholly predictable outcome of a trial is that it will cost both sides a lot of money.
