Divorce Lawyer serving Dillwyn and Charlottesville, VA

Divorce is one of the most emotionally draining legal matters a person can work through. From making sure you receive a fair property settlement to finding grounds for divorce, there is a seemingly endless list of subjective matters that arise during contested and uncontested divorce matters.

Whether you are seeking a contested or uncontested divorce, it is important to work with a lawyer who can competently guide you through the process. At Caroline Ayres Law Office that is exactly what you will find. We have more than two decades of experience working with clients in Charlottesville and Dillwyn and throughout Central and Northern Virginia.

Understanding Contested Divorce

Contested divorces are often more detailed, more expensive and require more involvement than uncontested divorces. A divorce attorney must work with the clients to determine reasonable grounds for divorce, including constructive desertion, adultery, religious beliefs or cruelty.

We do discovery to learn about hidden assets or bank accounts that have been kept secret from one spouse. Using interrogations, admissions and the request for production of documents, we can gather financial records to help build a stronger case.

Elements of Uncontested Divorce

In an uncontested divorce, a couple does not need to have grounds for a divorce; rather, simply stating incompatibility is enough. Uncontested divorce is typically most appropriate for couples who agree on the grounds of divorce and division of property.

We help clients determine what divorce process is most appropriate for their situation and give them the information they need to work effectively through each step.
