🤔 How do I file for divorce in the State of Virginia?
If you decide you want a divorce, you must file a document known as a “complaint” with the Virginia Circuit Court in the city or county where you reside and pay the required filing fee. The complaint requires you to provide the following information:

✔ The date and location of your wedding
✔ You and your spouse’s current living situation
✔ You and your spouse’s military status
✔ Proof of a minimum of six months’ residency in the state
✔ Grounds for filing for divorce (plus satisfaction of the separation period if filing for no-fault divorce)
✔ Ages and living arrangements of your children, if applicable

Finally, you must arrange to have a sheriff or private process server deliver the complaint and a court summons to your spouse.

🤔 Why Should You Choose Mediation?

✅ More amicable. Peaceful discussion and problem solving is proven to be far more effective and simpler for all parties involved.
✅ Less time and cost spent. Because the mediation process is much faster overall, you can avoid the sometimes harsh legal costs incurred by pursuing litigation.
✅ Less stressful. With easier and open communication, many find mediation to be a much less taxing event, which can even improve post-divorce and family relations after the fact.
✅ More confidential. As long as litigation is not pursued, and all aspects of the mediation process are agreed upon, there is no public record for mediation.

[06/02/21]   Child Support Mediation❓

An affordable and confidential process, child support mediation is an ideal way to decide the allocation of child support during a separation and a divorce without involving a court. Mediation is private, polite, and allows each party to take an active role in the process of determining the right amount of child support payments. The mediator’s job is to listen to the needs of each party and then help parties talk about how to reach the best financial arrangements for everyone involved.

➡️ GrahamLawFirmVa.com

[05/26/21]   When is divorce litigation needed❓

Settling your divorce via litigation typically results in a longer, more drawn-out divorce than mediation or collaborative divorce. Because you spend more time with your attorney and more time in court, litigation is also a more expensive process. However, litigation is the best option in certain divorce situations to ensure you are granted and receive what’s rightfully yours.

Because of the time and money spent during the litigation process, we recommend divorce litigation for our Northern Virginia clients if you or your spouse disagree on one or more of the following:

- Child custody
- Child visitation
- Child support
- Asset division
- Debt distribution
- Alimony payments (how much and for how long)

Litigation may also be required if one party is completely unreasonable during the initial stages of the divorce.

What is the difference between divorce litigation and divorce mediation?

Two of the most common divorce options are litigation and mediation.

Litigation, the more traditional method of the two, involves filing a lawsuit against your spouse and having a separate lawyer represent each of your cases in front of a judge. This is probably the right option if you need legal advice, your divorce is complicated, or either party has hostility toward the other.

Mediation means a third-party attorney sits down with you and your divorcing spouse to help you craft an agreement for ending your marriage. This process is faster, less expensive, and less emotionally draining than litigation, but it’s only an option if your divorce is simple and neither party is hostile.
