Filing for Divorce in Virginia

Before filing for divorce, you or your spouse must first meet the residency requirements of the state. In Virginia, one spouse must have lived in the state for at least 6 months before the divorce process can begin. If a spouse is a member of the armed forces, the residency requirement will be fulfilled if stationed in the state for at least 6 months.

Fault and No-Fault Divorce

Virginia offers both fault and no-fault divorce. Generally, filing for a no-fault divorce is a much simpler process since you will not have to prove any grounds.

If you apply for a fault divorce, these are the grounds available in Virginia:

  • Adultery or other sex acts outside of the marriage
  • Reasonable fear of bodily harm
  • Felony conviction that includes a sentence of at least 1 year and imprisonment
  • Willful abandonment or desertion

In some cases, proof of fault can potentially have an impact on the division of marital assets and property. Additionally, it may also affect alimony, so if you believe you have grounds for a fault-based divorce, discuss this with your divorce attorney.
