The Supreme Court of Virginia examined a variety of domestic relations problems and issues during the last decade. Most of the court's decisions involved divorce issues such as jurisdiction, alimony or support and maintenance, and child custody or support orders. However, the court also decided cases on annulment, the enforcement of support and maintenance decrees, legitimacy and paternity, adoption, name changes and intrafamily tort immunity.
