I am trying to divorce my husband, but in the state of Virginia,

Customer Question

I am trying to divorce my husband, but in the state of Virginia, I have to wait a year to obtain an uncontested divorce. Is there any way I can get this sooner, due to the fact that my husband is in hiding because he is wanted, he hasn't lived in the home in the past 3 months, and he has sent me two threatening text messages in the last month?

If youre seeking an uncontested consentual divorce then you must wait for at least one year. If youre seeking divorce with grounds then you may want to consider these possible grounds based upon what you have shared:
SEPARATE AND APART FOR SIX MONTHS: This ground can only be used if there are no children of the marriage under 18 and the parties have entered into a written property settlement agreement.
