Uncontested Divorce- How to Avoid Going to Court

Beginning July 1, 2012, the Virginia Code allows for certain uncontested divorces to be done by written depositions.  These depositions must be signed and notarized by one party to the case and one witness.  Then, the depositions are submitted to the court in lieu of a party and witness having to appear in person. 

This is a great option for someone who does not like going to court (which is most people).  It is also beneficial in that you do not have to take a day off work nor sit and wait in a stuffy courtroom only to have everyone else waiting in the courtroom hear your business when your turn comes.

If this is something you are interested in, contact the team at Hadley Law, PLC at 757-498-1800.  We handle uncontested divorces and will do written depositions for your case, if your case qualifies.
