Divorce in West Virginia

The divorce rate in West Virginia is 5.2 per 1000 people, higher than the 3.6 US average. The divorce process in Virginia can be complicated so it’s important to understand such issues as division of property, spousal support, and child custody. Divorce in West Virginia allows for the ‘equitable distribution’ of property meaning a fair but not necessarily equal division. Spousal support is not always granted and since it is the court’s responsibility to protect the interests of any children involved, child custody is determined on a case by case basis.
