What is the difference between divorce litigation and divorce mediation?

Litigation, the more traditional method of the two, involves filing a lawsuit against your spouse and having a separate lawyer represent each of your cases in front of a judge. This is probably the right option if you need legal advice, your divorce is complicated, or either party has hostility toward the other.

Mediation means a third-party attorney sits down with you and your divorcing spouse to help you craft an agreement for ending your marriage. This process is faster, less expensive, and less emotionally draining than litigation, but it’s only an option if your divorce is simple and neither party is hostile.

Should I get a prenuptial agreement?

More Americans are choosing to get prenuptial agreements before they get married. This option might make sense for you and your future spouse if:

➕There’s a possibility one of you might stop working in the future to care for children, go back to school, or for another reason.
➕One or both of you have children from previous relationships (a prenup helps ensure each biological child receives benefits in the event of their parent’s death).
➕One of you owns a business or you co-own a business together.
➕One of you brings significantly more assets or debt into the marriage than the other.

The Differences Between Joint and Sole Custody

✔️In the case of joint custody, both parents play an active role in the physical and custodial custody of the child and carry significant weight in regard to decisions involving the child. Do note that significant weight doesn’t always necessarily mean equal.

✔️When sole custody is awarded, one parent carries authority in the care of children, while the other parent may be awarded restricted or limited visitation rights.

🤔 How long does divorce take in Virginia?

The fastest option is to file a no-fault divorce where both parties agree to the terms of separation and have no significant disagreements about the division of assets, debts, child custody, and more. After living apart for one year, you can file your complaint and expect processing to be completed in as little as six to eight weeks.

At-fault divorces—where each spouse has a different idea about who deserves which assets, debts, custody, and more—take more time. The court must work out your case in the fairest way possible, which may take months or longer.
