Northern Virginia Premarital or Prenuptial Agreement Attorney
A premarital agreement can be a powerful tool to protect your financial future. A legally binding document, a premarital agreement makes it possible to define how financial questions will be answered should a divorce be needed. The agreement can cover a wide range of issues. The only thing it cannot include is agreements on child-related issues, such as child support or custody.
A premarital agreement can allow a spouse to state that he or she will not seek spousal support, can be used to dictate who will get the family home and can make clear other financial decisions that will go into effect upon divorce. Premarital agreements can provide peace of mind in a marriage, allowing couples to make important and practical financial decisions at the beginning of their marriage.
The Benefits Of Using An Attorney
It is possible to get a do-it-yourself form for a premarital agreement. But, like many things, you tend to get what you pay for. If you want to make sure that your agreement will work when you need it to, it is a good idea to work with a lawyer who can guide you through the process. Virginia has a number of old and unique laws and regulations that will not be explained on such forms. Your attorney will know about these potential pitfalls, and how to navigate them to create a strong and reliable contract.
In the event that the parties have all the details of their agreement worked out, a flat fee arrangement may be available.
