Premarital Agreements Can Benefit Anyone Getting Married

Premarital agreements or prenuptial agreements aren’t just for the “filthy rich” or sports stars anymore. As more people get married later in life, many soon-to-be-weds find themselves with significant assets they want to protect: homes, cars, savings accounts, businesses and retirement accounts.

At Hicks Crandall Juhl PC, our family law lawyers regularly draft premarital agreements for clients in Fairfax and other communities in northern Virginia who are ordinary folks just like you. These agreements can be an amicable way to determine how assets should be divided and the amount and duration of spousal support in a divorce.

What Is A Premarital Agreement?

A premarital agreement or prenuptial agreement can be a simple document that protects your separate property in a future divorce. While assets you bring into a marriage are generally separate property under Virginia law upon a divorce, seeking the advice of the family lawyers at Hicks Crandall Juhl PC and entering a premarital agreement can help ensure that you keep it that way.

Premarital agreements can also be Draconian documents that state that no income or assets accumulated during the marriage will ever become marital property or that no spousal support will ever be paid, regardless of the length of the marriage or circumstances in divorce. Athletes, entrepreneurs and professionals who anticipate high earnings during their marriages may want to protect those earnings from a future divorce.

Our attorneys draft simple premarital agreements, Draconian premarital agreements and everything in between. We also draft post-marital agreements for couples who want to establish an agreement during their marriage to create an understanding of how property should be divided if they should divorce in the future.
