Pre-Marital Agreements

Acknowledging the potential for divorce, and discussing the conceivable financial consequences, can certainly be a difficult proposition for parties engaged to be married.  However, when considering the high incidence of divorce in our society, it is wise for some persons to consider protecting their interests should an unforeseen change in circumstances occur.

Most people aren’t entirely aware of how marriage can affect their property rights, or debt liabilities.  Whether you’re a small business owner, or engaged to someone incurring student loan debt, it may be prudent to seek counsel so that you may make an informed decision concerning your finances.  Virginia permits people to agree on a wide variety of issues before marriage, to prevent unexpected consequences should divorce ever be a consideration.
