We also recommend you to visit Virginia State Judicial Branch website to find out any other updates and divorce paper filing requirements. Also, all Virginia courts use the same basic set of divorce forms. But some courts have special, local legal separation forms, too. To see if you will need any special local forms, contact your court clerk or your local county court’s website. The forms may be posted on their site. If not, the site will list the address and phone number of your local courthouse.
