A: Virginia Code Section 20-107.1(H) sets forth the required notices for court-ordered spousal support only, while Virginia Code Section 20-60.3 sets forth the required notices for court-ordered spousal support where the parents have a mutual child support obligation. Local practices in Virginia vary, but generally the required support notices can appear either in a written separation or custody agreement incorporated into a court order, or only in the court order itself. The notices provide useful and necessary information for the collection of court-ordered support in Virginia. A court will not enter a support order without the statutory-required notices, even if the parties have agreed to zero child support paid.
