Virginia's Equitable Distribution Law in Divorce
Every person faces different challenges in the divorce process. Many people make the mistake of thinking that only those with significant assets should seek representation for the division of assets. The truth is, couples with both substantial and modest asset holdings should consult with a legal professional. Although Virginia divides assets and debt using the "equitable distribution" process, this does not mean that assets will be split 50/50. It simply means that the court will attempt to divide the assets fairly and "equitably."
When property is divided, some factors which may be considered are:
- The length of the marriage
- The debts incurred during the marriage
- The economic standing of each spouse
- The physical and mental needs of each spouse
- The employment potential of each spouse
- Which parent has custody of the children
- The reasons for the divorce or separation
- Any spousal support award to either spouse
