Being Patient and Pro-Active During The Virginia Divorce Process

Posted on Jul 1, 2010 by Hofheimer Family Law

The divorce process in Virginia can take some time. You might feel impatient and anxious while you’re waiting for your divorce to be finalized, but there are steps you can take during the divorce to make it go more quickly and smoothly.

  • Prepare your family for the divorce. Talk to your children and anyone else who you feel needs to be informed and prepare them for the changes coming to the family.
  • Be prepared to co-operate with your Virginia divorce attorney and the judges who handle your case. Divorce is never fun, but it helps if you keep a good attitude and present yourself well.
  • Be sure your paperwork is in order. You will need various documents at different stages of your Virginia divorce. These documents might include bank statements, tax returns, deeds and titles. Your Virginia divorce attorney will tell you when you need them, but it’s good to have them in order and filed by category.
  • Ask lots of questions. Your Virginia divorce attorney is there to help you sort through and understand Virginia divorce law and how it applies to your case. If you don’t understand something in the divorce process, feel free to ask your attorney to explain it.
