Contact Us to Review Your Case

It is important to understand the difference between a contested divorce and an uncontested one. This is a commonly misunderstood situation for our clients. In Virginia, an uncontested divorce is when the parties:

  • Agree to be divorced,
  • Have a written Separation Agreement that makes adequate provisions in writing for the custody and support of the minor children of the marriage,
  • Have a written Separation Agreement that makes a fair and equitable division of your property.


If there are no children and an agreement, you can file for divorce with six month's separation. If there are children, or you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement, you have to be separated for at least one year.

A contested divorce is when the parties cannot agree on one or more points (property division, alimony, custody, or child support). Even if parties have lived separate and apart for six months, and wish to be divorced but cannot agree to the terms of settlement, or custody, it is a contested divorce.
