Our Fairfax marital agreement attorney can assist clients with drafting, negotiating, and reviewing:
Prenuptial agreements: This is an agreement between a couple drafted prior to their marriage
and can outline various terms concerning premarital assets, assets acquired
during the marriage,
property division in the event of
divorce, and spousal support, among other issues unique to a couple’s financial
circumstances. When the parties have signed, this agreement becomes effective
on the date of marriage.
Post-nuptial agreements: This type of agreement is drafted after a couple is married and can include
many of the same issues as prenuptial agreements and may also address
issues concerning children born or
adopted during the marriage, including
child support. This agreement becomes effective on the date when both parties have signed.
Entering into a post-nuptial agreement is an alternative to trial for
divorcing spouses to resolve all issues resulting from the dissolution
of their marriage. These agreements may be included in a court order,
often without the need for a court hearing.

Benefits of a Prenuptial or Post-Nuptial Agreement
Planning for the marriage: In many ways, the process of creating a prenuptial agreement can also
be seen as a way for couples to plan for their marriage. You can outline
expectations and resolve disagreements regarding finances at this early
stage to avoid disputes down the road.
Planning for divorce: In the event that the marriage does not work, entering into a post-nuptial
agreement allows the parties to resolve matters concerning finances, to
include who will remain in the marital residence, and
child custody without going through the stress, expense, and uncertainty of a trial.
You will have the peace of mind knowing that your interests are legally
protected by an agreement that was negotiated on your behalf by one of
our experienced and competent marital agreement attorneys.
