Divorce may be one of the most difficult choices to make in your life, but it doesn't have to be legally complicated when you have help from The Law Offices of Amanda Anne Reid, PLC.
Established in Fredericksburg, our Northern Virginia family law firm represents men and women in contested and uncontested divorce cases, including child custody, support and other associated family law matters. We want to help you make sure that your rights and the best interests of your children are protected throughout your case.
Assertively Protecting Your Rights And Your Best Interests In Your Divorce Case
Led by founding lawyer Amanda Reid, our team understands that how difficult it may be for our clients to make the decision to divorce their spouses. Whether you are considering divorce or are currently in the process of filing for divorce, our firm can help you effectively navigate the legal system.
Often, divorce is about much more than legally dissolving your marriage. Over the years, our Fredericksburg divorce attorney has worked together with our clients to help them achieve fair and fulfilling divorce agreements that address several associated legal issues, including:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Equitable distribution (separate and marital property matters)
- Property settlement agreements
Virginia is considered an equitable distribution state, meaning marital property and debt — or property and debt that was accumulated or enhanced during the marriage — will be fairly divided between both parties in a divorce. Equitable does not mean equal, however. We will work to ensure that your property is protected in your divorce settlement.
What Is An Uncontested Divorce?
Under Virginia law, a divorce may be obtained on "no fault" grounds when the parties have lived separate and apart for at least a year, or six months, if the parties have no children and have entered into a property settlement agreement.
Our firm considers a divorce to be uncontested when:
- The parties have lived separate and apart for the required period (six months for couples with no children, one year for couples with children)
- Neither party is seeking a divorce on "fault" grounds (e.g., adultery, cruelty or desertion)
- The parties have entered into a property settlement agreement (PSA) addressing all issues, including custody, support and the distribution of property
