Virginia Simplified Divorce Procedures

Separation agreements are specifically authorized by statute and will reduce the time required for living apart by 6 months. In addition, a spouse may waive service of process, but the waiver of service of process form must be signed in front of the clerk of the court. The testimony of either spouse must also, generally, be corroborated by a witness. [Code of Virginia; Title 20, Sections 20-99, 20-99.1:1, 20-107.3, and 20-109.1].
