If you are going through or thinking about a divorce, you may be wondering if you need a separation agreement. A separation agreement is a legal document that can make it easier for some couples to get a divorce quickly, particularly if you don’t have children together and don’t have a lot of property to divide.
In most cases you have to be separated for a year or more to get a divorce in Virginia. However, if you and your spouse can agree on all the terms of your divorce, a separation agreement may be able to shorten the required period to six months.
