Separation Agreements In Virginia
- posted: Aug. 12, 2014
In a deposition taken as part of an ongoing libel suit, actor/producer Tom Cruise was recently quoted as saying the following regarding activities related to custody of daughter Suri and his divorce from actress/fashion designer Katie Holmes:
“Listen, when there is a divorce… things change. And it’s more complicated, as everyone knows when that is, when that occurs, and there are certain agreements; now you have to ask for permission and organize schedules to make things happen. …It’s not an ideal scene. It’s not an ideal situation.”
No, it certainly is not. Mr. Cruise lives in Los Angeles, while Ms. Holmes lives in New York City, making it very difficult for little Suri to visit one parent or the other without a great deal of notice and activity.
It is evident that in the interest of their daughter and to support their own personal and professional endeavors, Mr. Cruise and Ms. Holmes have come to a separation agreement. These agreements are very often a necessary part of a divorce.
Residents of Virginia with minor children who are considering divorce should know that the commonwealth does not actually offer “separation agreements.” Virginians may request a separation of property agreement, which covers child visitation and temporary custody and other factors such as alimony and property division. A skilled attorney familiar with the Virginia statutes regarding these agreements can help divorcing couples come to the best possible available arrangement for all concerned.

Mr Thomas F. Harding is an Attorney that I admire and very knowledgeable, He started on my case in May of 2019 and still in progress and soon to be over, but when I first went to Mr Harding office I was so afraid to go forward with my divorce because my husband is a mean man and he told me that he wasn't going to let me go, nor was he going anywhere I thought my life was over until Mr Harding explain everything and I knew that he had my best interest at heart and his soft voice gave me reassurance that it will be alright and with his loving secretary Mrs Raquel Knight they work together and I was bless and I thank God for them and I have two new friends now and I will be dropping in to see them occasionally, God bless Mr Thomas F Harding for all that you do for others, A job well done!
