Holdings: 

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • In determining whether to award spousal support in a divorce action, Va. Code Ann. § 20-107 commands that, in order to exercise its discretion, the trial court shall consider the specific factors contained therein. When a divorce decree, grounded in Va. Code Ann. § 20-91(9), denies an award of spousal support (whether expressly or by failure to address the issue), the decree will be reversed and the cause remanded unless the record on appeal reveals that the chancellor made a finding, supported by credible evidence, either (a) that the appellant was guilty of a violation of Va. Code Ann. § 20-91(1), 20-91(3), 20-91(6) or Va. Code Ann. § 20-95, or (b) that, in consideration of the several factors enumerated in Va. Code Ann. § 20-107.1, the equities of the parties weighed against an award of spousal support.
