When a couple in Virginia marries, they likely do so believing that they will spend the rest of their lives together. However, as years pass, people change in ways that make them no longer compatible. Though both parties may recognize that ending the marriage is in the best interest of those involved, the divorce process can often seem overwhelming when someone tries to manage it without professional help. Unfortunately, the events surrounding the divorce of Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of deceased musician Kurt Cobain, illustrates these complications and could serve as a cautionary tale to others.
Car accidents happen in Virginia for a variety of reasons. Often, the causes are unrelated to felony actions. Unfortunately, a man who has been charged with multiple DUIs is now facing a serious legal situation following his most recent arrest.
You always have a smile on your face, and you raised your child to have a positive outlook on life. After your divorce, you noticed that your child was becoming more depressed and lethargic, but over time, you thought that it would improve. Recently, you arrived for a scheduled visitation only to hear that your kid did not want to see you.
Even for parents in Virginia who remain in a committed, romantic relationship, coming together to make decisions that are in the best interests of a child is often difficult. The situation often becomes even more complicated when the parents' romantic relationship ends. Despite that shift, parents must continue to make decisions together regarding their children. Though a court may have to sometimes intervene, parents must share custody of a child.
There is not much that stresses people out more than having to negotiate on the things they want to retain in their lives. For divorcees, sitting across from someone with whom they're losing a relationship and having a civil conversation about splitting assets or dividing child custody responsibilities can be a difficult battle.
All parents have a responsibility to their children. While they are obligated to provide emotional support and love, they must also provide for them financially. While there are some parents in Virginia who struggle to meet the obligations required of them in a child support order for a variety of different reasons, one man in another state claims that the state took money from him, alleging that he owed back support.
