Chesapeake Divorce Lawyer
Navigating the divorce process is challenging — financially and emotionally. At Jankell & Ireland, we aim to help you get through the process efficiently and cost-effectively so that, as soon as possible, you can begin your new life.
A common misconception about divorce is that a couple must go through legal separation before the divorce process can begin. Under Virginia law, there is no legal separation. There is a great deal of information about divorce that you may have found online or heard from friends and family members. It is important to keep in mind that much of the information you will encounter may be false or may not apply to you. Every divorce is different. Our lawyers will take the time to help you understand how the law will affect you, and devise a solution that will meet your unique needs.
