Frequently Asked Virginia Questions

Will I have to pay maintenance?

According to Virginia law, a married person who is separated from a spouse can file for a petition for “separate maintenance.” This may be an attractive option for those who may require additional support from a spouse but who do not want or cannot file for a divorce. Separate maintenance is different from spousal support.

Can I modify custody?

In the state of Virginia, you can only modify the custody or visitation under two conditions under Virginia Code § 20-108. The first condition is if there has been a material change of circumstances, and the second is when it is in the best interest of the children to modify the custody or visitation.

  • “Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
