DIVORCE OF MUTUAL AGREEMENT

If both sides agree to the divorce and can happily resolve their dispositions of property and custody of the children, and sign all the necessary documents then we can proceed with a divorce by mutual agreement, as long as there was a separation of the amount of time required (six months, when the parties have no children under age and 12 months, when the parties have children under age). A client can also obtain a divorce by agreement if the whereabouts of their partner is unknown and they also do not respond to our services by publication.

  • If a mutually agreed divorce is no longer possible, the customer will be billed a fee of $ 250 per hour, and the previously collected rates will be used as a prepayment deposit.
  • If you need to change your last name as part of the divorce procedure, please add $ 41 for the administrative expense of the court.

Art. 97 The Criminal Code of Prince William Prince William Virginia (US)  expressly provides for cases when the norms of the civil legislation of the US can apply to family relations. In particular, this applies to property and personal non-property relations, unless these norms contradict their essence. Not an exception to this rule is the divorce proceedings. Here it is necessary to single out only the first part of this act, which sets out general provisions on existing civil law institutions.

So, the Civil Code of the US does not explicitly state that this or that norm refers to divorce. This can only be understood in conjunction with the norms of the federal codes. This includes the following:

  • Regulation of legal capacity and legal capacity (Articles 17 – 18, 21 of the Civil Code of the US). Recognition of a person incompetent ( Article 29 of the Civil Code of the US).
  • Declaring a citizen deceased or recognizing him as a missing person (Articles 42 – 43, 45 of the Civil Code of the US), as well as restoring the rights of these persons in case of their appearance (Article 44, 46 of the Civil Code).
  • The list of acts of civil status ( Article 47 Civil Code of the US).
  • The regime of joint property of spouses ( Article 256 Civil Code of the US).
