Hampton Roads Virginia Divorce Attorneys - John W. Lee, PC

If you and your spouse agree you’re both headed for divorce, it may be time to contact a Virginia Beach divorce lawyer. This article will explain how to find one.

The divorce laws in Virginia are complicated. You have the ability to file for either a fault divorce – in which one spouse is blamed for ruining the marriage – or a no-fault divorce.

The circumstances that would support a fault divorce include:

  • Adultery
  • Sodomy outside of the marriage
  • Buggery (bestiality and other sexual acts against nature)
  • If one spouse is convicted for a felony and is imprisoned for longer than a year

If you are interested in a no-fault divorce, you and your spouse have to live apart for more than a year (six months if there are no children). A Virginia Beach divorce lawyer can further explain the law.

So Where Do You Find a Virginia Beach Divorce Lawyer?

You may want to take a moment to consider what type of lawyer you want. If you and your spouse will likely agree on many issues, you don’t need a “pit bull-type” divorce lawyer in Virginia Beach. With an uncontested divorce, you’d be better off with someone knowledgeable in Virginia divorce laws with an easy-going manner.

If you and your spouse are likely to disagree about dividing the marital property or over custody of the children, you’d be better off with a Virginia Beach divorce attorney with a reputation of going on the attack.

With that settled in your mind, you may want to ask your friends, family members or acquaintances for referrals. You are sure to know someone who has been through divorce. Ask them what it was like working with their attorneys. Did they fight hard for them? Did they get them the results they wanted? Could they wholeheartedly recommend them?

If you need a few more names to round out your list or you’d rather not discuss your personal problems with people you know, we can help. Attorneys.com offers a service that can connect you to a Virginia Beach divorce lawyer near you.

Legal Question----any Texas lawyers online??

This is a case in Texas--Jefferson County. My x took me back for a modification of original divorce decree and I agreed and we settled outside of courtroom. Short time later she took me back saying she didn't understand what she was signing?? Anyways the judge let the modification stay as it was and would not change it. Now she is taking me back again to change it. Someone told me you have to wait at least 3 years before you can file a motion to modify after one has already taken place. Can someone clarify? Thanks

Better for what?

Where have you lived during your 11 year marriage? Marital property rights will depend largely on that. Iowa is not a community property state, Texas is. As far as child support, you could probably find each state's child support schedules online, which should tell you what the "norm" is for each of those states; same comment regarding alimony.
I doubt you'll find a boat load of lawyers that know both Iowa and Texas divorce law that can give you very specific answers.
I know of no enforcible "stay away" provision regarding the will.
