QDRO: An important tool in divorce property division

Anyone considering divorce does a service to him or herself by learning all they can about it before starting the process. One way of looking at divorce is as a major campaign.

And there is always the matter of property division to contend with.

Recovering Damages for Assault

The perpetrators of such conduct are not limited to individuals who inhabit back alleys and darkened shadows of the inner city; but more often include corporate CEOs, politicians, entertainment moguls and television personalities.The victims of such physical abuse can be men or women. Regardless of gender, the victims have one thing in common, namely, the fact that they often feel powerless to take any action against the abuser, beyond merely reporting the crime to the police.However, Virginia law DOES offer another option. In addition to involving law enforcement to criminal prosecute the perpetrators of these assaults, a victim is also entitled to pursue a civil action against the abuser for damages caused by the conduct. Such damages can include compensation for any bodily injuries, and medical bills associated with treatment for those injuries; as well as, mental anguish and emotional distress resulting from the conduct.
