While it is not something that couples want to talk about before marriage, the unfortunate reality is that many marriages and committed relationships end in divorce. Considering a prenuptial agreement makes senses, and allows the couple to legally spell out the financial obligations in advance such as the division of property and issues of support. Family Law Associates of Richmond, P.C. will assist you in drafting a premarital or prenuptial agreement, setting forth the property rights and obligations of the parties in the event of divorce or death of the parties. In the event of divorce, this agreement will act as a contract between the parties in lieu of seeking a court determination of property and support rights.
Before “tying the knot,” you might consider tying up the loose ends.
