Is your divorce wrong for mediation?

Divorce is not always the heated and contentious transaction portrayed on TV and in movies. More often, couples prefer to take a gentler approach to ending their marriages through mediation. Mediation allows a couple to make their own important decisions about their future, such as property division and custody, instead of surrendering that control to the court.

A parenting agreement can make child custody easier to address

During divorce, one of the most emotionally challenging matters you and your spouse will have to address if you have a child is custody. Understandably, the fact that you may not be able to spend as much time with your child as you once did can be heartbreaking.

Pets are part of your family too, so what happens if you divorce?

If you are currently living in Arlington and preparing for divorce, you are definitely not the only one. No two divorce situations are exactly the same, albeit your circumstances may be similar to another. Many people in Virginia face obstacles in divorce when disagreements arise regarding custody of family pets. Whether you're a parent of human children, or childless but consider your fur-baby as near to a son or daughter as can be, custody issues can be problematic if you don't know where to seek support.

Legal separation is an option when divorce may not be

When a Virginia married couple agrees that their relationship is over, many choose to move forward with divorce. However, this may not be an option for you for many reasons, yet there are still ways you can formally end your relationship. You can do this through legal separation.

Divorce mythbuster: Sorting fact from fiction

Before you decided to divorce, you may have discussed the idea with friends or family members who have already navigated the process in Virginia. If so, you may have received some worthwhile advice and information about how to keep stress levels low and bounce back quickly once the court hands down your decree. You may also have been given some misinformation, however, as there are many divorce myths circulating that a lot of people believe if they don't take time to determine fact from fiction.

Nesting: It might be the key to unlock your low-stress divorce

As you watched your children grow from their toddler years into pre-teens and teenagers, you've enjoyed seeing them spread their wings, make friends, increase their knowledge and set out to achieve their goals. When you sat them down to tell them you were getting divorced, one of their biggest concerns was whether they would have to move. Even a mere mention of going to a new school, leaving their current Virginia neighborhood or having to travel back and forth from your house to their other parent's seemed to cause them stress.

Maintaining your sanity while cohabitating during divorce

Like many individuals who have realized that a divorce is best for them, once you've gotten over the emotional hurdle, the main issue you're left to face may be financial. You're working toward a brighter, happier and more stable future, and you know that it'll be worth it in the long run, but the fact of the matter is that, in the short term, your budget may be tight.

Uncontested divorce could be a simpler way to end your marriage

The decision to end a marriage is never an easy one to make, no matter the circumstances. However, there are times in which it may be possible to make this complex and difficult process a bit easier. For you, this may mean filing for an uncontested divorce.
