Virginia Alimony Law

HomeAlimony VirginiaVirginia Alimony Law

Alimony, also known as spousal support or maintenance is the financial assistance provided to a former spouse by the other upon legal decree.

It is not a mean to punish the guilty spouse, but is provided to decrease the financial disturbances that can take root from divorce.

A Factor to consider:

In Virginia Alimony law, a petition of adultery can provide divorce,

but this can be a major concern in the case of alimony.

In the old alimony laws, a person’s right to alimony is cut off when s/he is proved to be faulty.

But in the revised law, they are not completely deprived of the right.

But alimony determined depends on the adultery committed by the recipient or

infidelity of the person from whom the amount is sought.
