What is 'reasonable' versus 'fixed' visitation?

It is only natural that Virginia parents going through a divorce will want to end up with a child custody and visitation schedule that allows them both to have a meaningful relationship with their child.

Thus, it is important to understand what the difference between reasonable visitation and fixed visitation is.

As a result, drivers in Virginia may have noticed an increased police presence on the roads recently.

A high-asset divorce need not derail one's retirement plans

Virginia is an equitable distribution state, meaning that marital property will be divided fairly (although not necessarily equally). Retirement accounts may be considered marital assets that are subject to division, meaning that it is possible for a person to walk away from a divorce -- even a high-asset divorce -- with a significant deficit in their retirement savings.
