Drafting a prenuptial agreement

S as time passes in a marriage that first feeling of love a couple experiences can evaporate. This can lead the couple to another significant life event - a divorce. Potential brides and grooms in Virginia have options to safeguard their interests in the event of divorce and division of assets.

One of the available options is drafting a prenuptial agreement to keep each spouse's premarital financial interests separate and safe. Although raising the issue of a prenuptial agreement may seem awkward, if a prospective bride or groom has wealth or owns a business, it may be in their best interest to be prepared for a future divorce which could impact finances and inheritance plans.

If you have children from a previous marriage, a prenuptial agreement can help protect their interests as well. It can limit the amount of support a spouse would have to pay in the event of a divorce. This is especially important if a spouse owns and runs a successful business or has complex assets or other high-value assets.

Once you have made your mind up that a prenuptial agreement is needed, you should talk to your future spouse in a relaxed and happy atmosphere about the benefits of the agreement. If that does not work, wait for another appropriate time to revisit the issue.
