Divorce Law in Virginia

Virginia divorce law provides married couples the right to file no-fault and fault complaints for divorce. No-fault divorce is appropriate when a marriage has broken down with no chance of reconciliation. A no-fault divorce can be obtained after a period of separation, regardless of fault. Fault divorce is found when domestic violence, adultery, and other misconduct is present. If domestic violence is a concern, we will obtain protective orders and no-contact orders for abused victims. Which type of divorce is appropriate in your situation will be discussed with your lawyer at Locke & Quinn.

How do you know when it is time to say goodbye?

You may want to ask yourself the following questions if you are considering a divorce. This is not an all-inclusive list, and certainly many other questions can and should be asked.

  • Has there been physical violence in the relationship?
  • Besides your children, do you and your spouse have mutually enjoyable activities that you share and look forward to together?
  • Do you and your spouse talk? Communication is an essential part of any relationship and if communication fails, many times the relationship fails.
  • Obviously you were at one time “in love” with your partner but do you still genuinely like your partner?
  • Are you and your partner willing to work on problems in the relationship in an effort to make the marriage work and move forward?

When You Decide to Move Forward with the Divorce

Our experienced divorce attorneys can help you understand the complicated issues surrounding property division, spousal support, and issues involving children. Equitable distribution of property will be applied to tangible and intangible items including homes, retirement plans, and debt. Whether or not spousal support (alimony) is granted requires a multi-pronged analysis, taking many factors into consideration, including the length of the marriage, standard of living, and earning capacity of each spouse.

My husband and I just recently finalized the adoption of our son thanks to Colleen! Our situation happened FAST, and Colleen never missed a beat. Colleen, Katie and Charli were all quick to answer any questions we had and made us feel confident in their ability to provide the services needed. We were blown away at the knowledge and organization Colleen had throughout this process as well! We intend to continue to grow our family through adoption again, and will be using Locke & Quinn!

My wife and I worked with Colleen Quinn and her paralegal Charli (CharSalle) on my daughter's international re-adoption. We are in Fairfax, VA and they were happy to work with us even though we weren’t local to them. Everything was done by email and mail. They answered all of our questions in a timely manner and were very knowledgeable about the process. We worked almost entirely with Charli after the initial emails and phone calls and she was great to work with. They filed all of our paperwork with our court, everything went smoothly, and we received our Final Order. Charli has always kept us in the loop about the process and sent us updates. We mailed original documents back and forth without any issue. Their legal fee was very competitive and better than most attorneys in our own area. We are very pleased with their work and assistance in getting our adoption finalized. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Thank you!

Personal Injury is a challenging event on many levels in ones life. Have you experienced a moment where you were injured and need to seek legal advice? You need to make a call to Colleen Quinn today. I began to research different law firms that handled Personal Injury. I interviewed several attorneys and spoke with large practices to small firms. I was impressed by Colleens resume and her work with women and the law. I will never regret hiring Colleen and her TEAM. The word TEAM is exactly what I received through out my case. My case was attacked with professionalism and the team was always in communication with me. When I would call to ask questions or to get a better explanation I was always made to feel as if I was the only client. As my case arrived closer to the trail date, my TEAM went into full 110%+ effort and preparation. Colleen was ALWAYS seeking to settle my case with the best outcome that she could. YOU WILL NOT FIND A MORE UPFRONT, HONEST, HARDWORKING-GET IT DONE ATTITUDE THAN THE TEAM OF COLLEEN M. QUINN!! MAKE THAT CALL TODAY-YOU WONT REGET IT!!
