Equitable Distribution In Virginia

Virginia is an equitable distribution state, meaning that marital property is divided equitably between spouses. The term equitable means fair and just. Property acquired during a marriage is typically classified as marital, with limited exceptions. Separate property includes property acquired by a spouse prior to a marriage and limited property acquired during a marriage, including property acquired by gift or inheritance.

While courts must divide marital property in an equitable fashion, the term equitable does not require an even 50-50 split. When spouses are unable to reach an agreement concerning property division, the court has considerable discretion to determine how to divide marital property in a manner it considers equitable.

Given the discretion that courts have to divide property in an equitable fashion, it is critical that you have a skilled divorce attorney on your side who can negotiate a favorable division of property or make a compelling case on your behalf at trial. You can find the strong advocate you require at The Crawford Law Firm, PLLC
