While considered the most non-romantic aspect of planning a wedding, protecting your interests comes first in the crafting of a prenuptial agreement.
The Protection That Comes With A Prenuptial Agreement
Our skilled and experienced divorce lawyers in Manassas, who attend to every detail, can be your greatest ally in assembling a document that is enforceable. Certain elements must exist for a prenup to be considered valid. Those include:
- An agreement in writing
- Signed by both prospective spouses
- The prenup meets basic standards of fairness
- Full and fair disclosure
Another important factor in the drafting of a prenuptial agreement is the lawyer you and your soon-to-be spouse retain. A prenuptial agreement requires careful preparation. It is not a document thrust upon a bride or groom to sign before a wedding starts.
A prenuptial agreement can also ease the divorce process should the couple decide to split. It spells out property division/debt upon separation, spousal support and other issues common to formally ending a marriage.
