Couples who decide to get married in Virginia and across the country have several decisions ahead of them. In addition to what kind of ceremony to have and who will attend, they must also make important decisions regarding how to best protect their personal and professional finances. Many couples who want to protect their family business in addition to protecting personal assets, for examples, in the event of a divorce choose to create a prenuptial agreement.
Prenuptial agreements serve several important purposes. Despite the effort that some couples put into creating one, they could ultimately be determined to be invalid. Fortunately, there are certain measures that must be put in place to ensure that a prenup is enforceable in the event of a divorce. To do this, it is often necessary for each member of the couple to have an attorney to represent their interests and review the provisions of legal documents before signing.
