Lopez v. Lopez

Facts:

The parties were granted a divorce based upon a one-year separation, pursuant to Va. Code Ann. § 20-91(9) (a). Among other orders, the husband was awarded $ 350 per month in spousal support for eighteen months. The parties were to have joint legal custody of their daughter, with the wife having primary physical custody, and the husband to have reasonable and liberal visitation. The husband was to pay $ 65 per month of child support.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • A “no-fault” divorce decree is no bar to spousal support for either party unless there exists in favor of the opposite party some other ground of divorce. Even if such a ground exists to bar spousal support, the court can still award spousal support if it finds, from clear and convincing evidence, that denying support would constitute a manifest injustice. Va. Code § 20-107.1(B).
