Topics Covered

  • Learn about Virginia’s simplified no-fault divorce requirements, which no longer require a corroborating witness or the expense of a deposition
  • Compare Virginia’s new one-party procedure to those of other states that use a similar one-party process
  • Explore the current purchasing power of various digital assets, and see how they are divided in the context of equitable distribution of the marital estate

Gain a working understanding of Virginia’s simplified no-fault divorce requirements, which no longer require a corroborating witness, and then take a tour of digital asset issues to learn how they can complicate property division in divorce cases in the Commonwealth. Review the changes to section 20-106 and familiarize yourself with the one-party affidavit process in support of an uncontested divorce. Compare Virginia’s new procedure to those used in other states with a similar one-party process. A sample affidavit will be provided, and the benefits and potential issues of using this streamlined divorce process are also covered.

Undoubtedly, you have heard about digital assets, but what are they and how are attorneys and courts addressing them in divorce cases? This seminar provides a basic understanding of the various forms of digital assets, how they are acquired, sold, and traded, how they impact income for purposes of calculating support, how they are owned, and how they can be valued and divided in the context of equitable distribution of the marital estate. An understanding of digital assets is critical to any case where these are part of the marital property. Build your vocabulary for and understanding of the varying types of digital assets including relevant definitions and platforms.

The seminar focuses on the current purchasing power of digital assets, steps to acquire the currency and assets, the meaning of a digital wallet, how to identify, trace, convert, and transfer the assets, and any intellectual property rights that may attach. Explore how to find and value these digital assets and how to present evidence to the court for purposes of properly calculating support and properly valuing and dividing the marital estate.

Our experienced presenters also review evolving federal and state laws that affect these assets as well as reviewing current case law that addresses these assets and currencies in the context of a divorce action.
