A Virginia Asset Division Attorney Protecting Your Property Rights

Division of property, meaning "assets and debt obligations," in Virginia, is called "equitable distribution." The court must first classify the property into one of three categories: marital, separate or hybrid. The court must also determine the property's value. Classification and valuation is determined through legal analysis, appraisals, tax assessments or expert opinions. The court, in determining how to divide this property, must consider factors such as:

  • Monetary and nonmonetary contributions of each spouse
  • Length of the marriage
  • Tax implications
  • Circumstances that contributed to the divorce, including adultery
