While divorce is certainly an emotional event, it is also a major financial one. Individuals may be on the receiving or paying end of child support and alimony, and property division can set the stage for one's post-divorce financial standing. This is why Virginians need to understand the law as it pertains to these family law matters. Only by doing so can they better ensure that they negotiate and argue for resolutions that further their financial interests.
Divorce can be an emotionally and financially taxing process. It can leave individuals angry and fearful for their future. This can force people to aggressively pursue the things that are important to them, whether that be child support, child custody or certain assets during the property division process. As contentious as these matters can be, a number of them can be avoided even before the issues arise.
