When you legally separate from your spouse, this usually means you’re no longer living together but you haven’t gone through…
Separation Agreements in Virginia
A separation agreement is one way in which a couple can divorce without needing a trial or experiencing the public nature of court. As one of our mediation services, separation agreements provide a chance for both parties to cordially and privately set out their intentions for the separation regarding issues like child custody, child support, alimony, and property division.
Our Graham Law Firm attorneys are here to represent you in the separation agreement process. To schedule a consultation, call us at 703-687-6817 or fill out our contact form.
Why Create a Separation Agreement for Your Virginia Divorce
Separation agreements outline the tenants of a divorce by which you and your spouse will be abiding. By privately setting out the divorce terms in our mediation services, you can ensure that everyone’s voice is heard. When the alternative is a very public display in a Virginia court, the benefits of choosing a separation agreement become apparent.
The benefits of a separation agreement include:
- Privacy – Only those who you want to know the terms of your divorce will know
- Openness – The mediation process allows for each party to be open with their best interests
- Speed – There is no need for an extended court battle with a separation agreement
- Less expense – Because the process is faster it is also less expensive
Instead of experiencing an expensive, protracted court battle during your divorce proceedings, a separation agreement offers you a congenial way to divorce without unnecessary publicity.
