Considerations courts make in child support cases

Determining where children should live and how they will spend their time can be a complicated process when Virginia parents are going through a divorce. The courts are likely to determine that one parent will need to pay child support. This will allow both parents to share the financial burden of raising their children.

Lessons to learn from the Bezos divorce

Many Virginia residents have probably noticed the headlines regarding the separation of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie. The divorce has been riddled with stories of adultery and threats of blackmail. While this type of split isn't exactly typical, it's not unusual for high-asset divorces to be complex. There are a few lessons that can be taken away from this celebrity breakup.

Report makes recommendations for bankruptcy reform

One paradox some people in Virginia may face if they are considering bankruptcy is that while filing is a thing they need to do because they lack money, filing for bankruptcy costs money. There is usually a surge in bankruptcies in March and April as people get their tax refunds and use that to pay for bankruptcy.

Collection agencies must respect a debtor's rights

Virginia collection agencies will likely try whatever it takes to get money from a debtor. However, there are limits as to what they can do to get what they are owed. For instance, they are not allowed to contact a person before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m. A debt collector is also barred from contacting a person while at work if the collector has been asked not to do so.

The pros and cons of assuming a mortgage after a divorce

In addition to alimony, retirement accounts and child custody and support, dealing with the marital home is often one of the most contentious issues among divorcing couples in Virginia. A common solution is for one ex to keep the home. In such a case, the next step is to determine how to handle the mortgage. One option is to retain the original joint mortgage. Another possibility is to refinance.

Why a custody order could be changed

Virginia parents and others typically operate under the terms of a child custody agreement after a divorce. Depending on the circumstances of a case, both parents may be given custody of the child, but it is also possible that only one parent is granted custody. Regardless of what the initial order states, it may be possible to have it modified at a later date. Of course, this assumes that it is in the child's best interest to do so.
