Dividing a Virginia business in a divorce

When couples choose to marry in Virginia, most do so with the intention of being together for the rest of their lives. In some cases, this could include sharing the burdens related to building a business, whether that includes both spouses directly involved in the business or one spouse making sacrifices to enable the other. Should the marriage end in divorce, dividing a business can be complicated.

Divorce process in Virginia requires formal separation first

Ending a marriage is a big step that needs careful consideration. The laws of Virginia require couples to spend some time apart to make sure a divorce is what they want. Before the divorce process can be finalized, spouses must live apart for six months. If they have children, divorcing parents must live separately for at least one year. 

Co-parenting: Issues to consider in Virginia divorce

When a Virginia married couple decides to divorce, they often encounter numerous challenges regarding child custody issues. Spouses divorce, but parents do not, and this means co-parenting terms must be decided as part of the settlement. Every family is unique, which is why the court often decides custody issues on a case-by-case basis.

Virginia woman accused of drunk driving after accident

When people are faced with a law enforcement member, they can often be overwhelmed by anxiety and nervousness. Not only can this anxiety affect their behavior, it could also make it more difficult for them to fully consider the implications of the information they might provide. Unfortunately, a young woman in Virginia was recently charged after she was suspected of drunk driving.
