Preparing for a Virginia divorce

When couples in Virginia walk down the aisle of a church or other venue to recite their wedding vows, they do so with the intention that they will spend the rest of their lives together. Unfortunately, as people change over time, couples find that they are no longer compatible, often leading them to contemplate whether it is in their best interest to end the marriage. While there are many reasons for and against filing for divorce, a person should not feel like he or she has to stay in an unhappy situation simply because of the financial toll it might have.

A prenuptial agreement can help Virginia business owners

Business owners often expend a great deal of time and energy building their business. While most business owners in Virginia would be reluctant to jeopardize their business by entering into an agreement without a proper contract or legal agreement in place, many people leave their business interests unprotected by a potential divorce. However, many do not fully understand the impact that a divorce can have if there is no prenuptial agreement in place.

Virginia woman facing drunk driving charges

There are often unexpected obstacles when driving. While most drivers are aware of this potential and take appropriate measures, it might be easy for people to become disoriented when they encounter them at night. Despite this, a woman in Virginia is facing drunk driving charges as a result of an accident that happened at night.

Special visitation: Interacting digitally

As someone who lives far from your child, you may not have regular visitation time. You want to see your child and their activities, but it's hard when your job makes you travel the world. You most often have your child with you in the summer, but then, you aren't getting to see them throughout the year as much as you'd like.

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie spar over child support

The end of a relationship is always difficult, even when couples in Virginia are committed to splitting as amicably as possible. When a divorce involves two wealthy individuals living under a microscope who have six children together, the potential for conflict is even more understandable. In fact, recent court filings regarding Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie question whether Pitt is paying an appropriate amount of child support.

Ways to support peaceful co-parenting

Divorces can be messy in Virginia and across the country. Even when both parties agree that ending a marriage or romantic relationship is in the best interest of all parties involved -- including the children -- the emotions often associated with the process can often complicate the decision-making process. However, when there are children involved, parents who are dedicated to peacefully co-parenting may be able to smooth the transition for their children, leading to interactions with less conflict.
