    Manassas, VA Divorce Lawyers

    Filing for divorce is never easy. However, seeking out the right divorce lawyers will simplify the process and allow you to navigate the proceedings with greater control. Our attorneys have the experience to understand how draining a divorce can be on your family, your resources, and your nerves.

    The Irving Law Firm will work with you to make sure that you are given not only what you are legally due, but preserve your family’s needs as well. Divorce is often hardest on those that are ignored in the process, and we will ensure that your loved ones are all being properly considered.

    Divorce Attorneys: Ending Marriages, Not Families

    The Irving Law Firm operates under the strong conviction that families matter. Selecting a lawyer for divorce with this mentality can make all the difference. We offer you a divorce attorney committed to helping you move forward with your life without leaving your family behind.

    Through the entirety of the proceedings, your attorney will help in the form of advice as well as legal counsel. Your legal partner will be there for you throughout the process, not just in the court room on the date of trial.

    An Outline Of Virginia Divorce Laws

    In Virginia, you can file a divorce as either a no-fault or at-fault divorce. Below is some further explanation of the divorce law.

    No-fault divorce

    After you have lived apart from your spouse without any interruption for at least one year

    If you and your spouse do not have children who are minors, after you have been separated without interruption for a period of six months, and have executed a Property Settlement Agreement.

    Fault grounds for divorce
    • Adultery, sodomy, or buggery
    • Conviction of a felony or incarceration
    • Legal separation due to the following:
    • Willful desertion or abandonment
    • Cruelty and reasonable apprehension of bodily harm
    Annulments

    Unlike a divorce, which dissolves a legal marriage, an annulment renders the entire marriage void. This essentially treats it like it never happened (though you still may need to go through the same division of property proceedings).

    Additional Elements

    Our Virginia divorce lawyers will also work to make sure you get what is fair in terms of the following:

    • Property division
    • Modifications
    • Alimony (referred to as “spousal support” in Virginia)

    The Irving Law Firm: Representing Your Family

    Our law firm is committed to more than just racking up wins in the courtroom. We are committed to the idea that families matter. In cases of divorce, it can sometimes be hard to see beyond the pain and heartbreak, and separate personal desires from the good of the whole family.

    We consider our law firm more than a business; it is a family enterprise, and we bring that sense of caring to our clientele. It is important, especially in the formalities of the legal world, to remember that we are fighting for the lives and well-being of real people and that your case matters.

      What Our Clients Say About Us

      Our lawyers will represent you in family, business formation, criminal, personal injury, & estate planning matters.

      I Didn’t Feel Like A Client, I Was Family

      I don’t normally post things and typically stay to myself, but I felt convicted as someone out there may be going through the same thing that I have- fighting for custody/ visitation of your child and can use some direction. There’s a lot of great attorneys/ firms out there and I have spent the money hiring and/ interviewing, but I needed a meticulous, fierce and dynamic one just to have a fighting chance. From the moment I met Attorney Rebecca Thacher, I knew she was the attorney for me. I didn’t feel like a client, I was family.
      What’s crazy about this….. My case was on a Monday morning, but because I retained her as my lawyer so late, I didn’t give her my information until almost after 4:00 on that Friday. She understood my plea for help and was absolutely fierce in the courtroom citing all my concerns and raised crucial points. I came out victorious. I’m a father and I know what it’s like for a child to be used as a weapon, with Attorney Rebecca Thacher you are not in this alone so please ask for help and retain her.

      I Always Felt That She Had My Best Interests At Heart

      Angela Morehouse at the Irving Law Firm represented me in my divorce and for the guardianship/conservatorship of my mother. Her nd her paralegal are not only professional but thorough in their representation. I always felt that she had my best interests at heart and could count on her and the firm during my most difficult times. I would highly recommend Angela and the firm and wouldn’t hesitate to retain them in the future if the need arises.
