Contested and Uncontested Divorce
For the most part, a divorce can either be categorized as contested or uncontested.
A contested divorce means that the parties do not agree on all the issues involved such as the arrangements for:
The issues that are controversial in a contested divorce will usually be decided upon by a judge, and the legal fees for such divorces are usually much higher than for uncontested divorces in which the parties agree on all the terms regarding how to end their marriage. The Law Office of Thomas B. Dance, P.C., can help with both types of divorces.
Some of our clients have questions about legal separation and whether they need a separation or a marital agreement. In the Commonwealth of Virginia, married couples generally need to have been separated for at least one year to be granted a divorce by a judge. However, a separation agreement can help make the process faster if certain conditions are met. We can help you understand your rights and options regarding legal separation and marital/separation agreements, regardless of where you are in the divorce process.
