When divorce is better for the children

Virginia parents who are concerned about how separation will affect their children might wonder if they should postpone a divorce. In some cases, it might be better for the children if the parents stay together. In other cases, however, divorce is still the best choice.

Virginia residents often share a bank account with their spouse. If the need arises to close the account, it can generally be done without the consent of the other person or people on the account.

The relationship between careers and divorce

Other professions in the top 10 included mechanics, automotive service technicians and logisticians.
