- Excerpt from Marriage, Divorce & Your Business:

If you own a business, or any asset for that matter, and you intend to marry or divorce, you need to read this. Virginia is not a community property state. But it is an equitable distribution state. What does that mean to you? If you acquire an asset during your marriage, unless you inherited it or got it as a gift (from someone other than your spouse), it is presumed to be martial property. It doesn’t matter if the asset is only in your name, your spouse’s name or joint names. It is still presumed to be marital if it was acquired any time between the date you got married and the date you and your spouse finally separate. And marital property is subject to being equitably divided by the court when a marriage breaks up.
