Equitable Distribution in Virginia
Unless the parties have entered into a valid prenuptial agreement or premarital agreement, property that was acquired during the marriage will need to be divided or allocated between the parties at the time of divorce. Often times, there will be tracing issues, where one party has contributed separate income or assets to marital property. It is important to be fully prepared to resolve these issue.
If the parties are unable to agree as to the division of property through settlement negotiations, collaborative law or mediation, then a judge will decide how the parties’ property will be divided, taking into account the factors enumerated in Virginia Code Section 20-107.3.
