Fault & No-Fault Divorce

In Virginia, divorcing parties can file for divorce on fault or no-fault divorce grounds. Filing for fault-based divorce is generally more difficult. The grounds for divorce in these situations are limited and you will need to prove fault on the part of the other person. In most situations, this type of divorce is contested, which makes the process more difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. For this reason, most divorcing couples opt for no-fault divorce.

The requirements for no-fault divorce include:

  • The couple must be separated for at least one year if the couple has children.
  • Couples with no minor children may be separated for at least six months.
  • There is an additional requirement for couples without minor children to sign a separation agreement.

Although no-fault divorce is easier than fault-based divorce, it is not always the right solution. In some cases, fault-based divorce may be the better option. When and how to file for divorce is a very individual decision and the right option depends on the specific circumstances. It is important to get advice from an attorney with knowledge of divorce law in Virginia.
