Fault vs. no-fault divorce in Virginia

You’re dealing with a fault-based divorce if:

  • Your spouse cheats on you
  • Your spouse is convicted of a felony
  • Your spouse is guilty of cruelty, desertion or abandonment

Virginia allows fault divorces, and proving that your spouse is at fault can affect the outcome of your asset distribution.

Alternatively, a no-fault divorce is not based on either party’s conduct, and you must agree to live separately for 12 months to move forward with the divorce. Call O’Brien Law to have a knowledgeable fault-based divorce attorney help you navigate your divorce.
