The vast majority of people who make the decision to marry do so with the intention of spending the rest of their lives with the person that they wed. However, people change over the course of their lives, sometimes significantly. These changes often mean that two people are no longer compatible, making a divorce the best option for everyone in a family.
In fact, some statistics indicate that Virginia has a relatively high divorce rate with approximately one in 10 making the decision to end their marriage. Though it is often the first step to a happier life, many people find it a difficult process. Fortunately, there are measures that people can take to ease the process.
Just like people who save money for retirement or purchase life insurance, often certain measures can help protect people from the unexpected, such as the end of a marriage. The attorneys at Lutins & Pilgreen, PC, are dedicated to helping people with a variety of different documents to help them plan for a divorce. This includes the creation of prenuptial or postnuptial agreements and separation agreements.
It is understandable that some people may be reluctant to take steps to plan for a divorce. However, taking such measures can help couples understand expectations regarding property and debt division. These steps can help couples in Virginia reduce the time and money often associated with ending a marriage while also reducing conflict between two divorcing spouses. Having such plans in place often makes life easier in the future.
