Northern Virginia Equitable Distribution Lawyer
Virginia is an equitable distribution state, which means that property and debts will be equitably divided after a divorce. This does not mean that each party will get exactly fifty percent, but a close distribution of property is a good preliminary place to start with each former spouse. Different factors contribute to the final division of property and debt. This includes everything purchased or earned by the parties during the marriage.Equitable Distribution in Virginia
Before dividing the marital property and debts, the court must determine what is marital and individual properties. Individual property is property, gifts or inheritance that one party owns separately and brought into the marriage.
What Determines The Division Of Property?
There are several factors that help the courts determine how property, debts, gifts, or inheritance is divided after a divorce. These factors include, but are not limited to the following:
- The length of the marriage
- The monetary and non-monetary contributions of each party to the welfare of the family
- The income of each party and the potential for future earnings
- The ages, physical and mental condition of each party
- Any other factors, including the tax consequences, that should be taken into consideration to make sure the award is equitable

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.
She Took Care Of Everything That Was Right & Needed To Be Done & I’m Glad I Went To Her
