During the dissolution of a marriage, the emotional anxiety and tension experienced by the parties is often exacerbated by uncertainty that surrounds the financial consequences of the divorce. In Virginia, the laws pertaining to divorce are aimed at promoting fair and equitable results with regard to financial issues.

All important financial decisions made by a party to a divorce should not be made on emotion alone, but rather after careful consideration of all assets, liabilities and income after full disclosure by both parties. Written agreements should be completed with the benefit of professional legal and financial advice. These financial issues include equitable distribution of marital property and debt, spousal support, child support and attorney’s fees.
