Why Should I Plan For Divorce?
Few people enter marriage expecting it will end one day. Nevertheless, Virginia has one of the highest divorce rates in the country. Despite the best intentions of many Virginians, one in 10 will experience this trauma at some point in their lives.
People buy life insurance in case they die unexpectedly. They contribute to 401(k)s in expectation that they will age and need to retire. At Lutins & Pilgreen, PC, in Roanoke, we help our clients plan for divorce.
Our divorce preparation lawyers can help you create a divorce plan accounting for these and other situations:
- Prenuptial agreements/premarital agreements to determine divorce terms prior to a marriage
- Marital agreements to determine property, custody and support rights while remaining in a marriage
- Separation agreements to determine divorce terms during the typical six-month to one-year waiting period before Virginia divorces can be finalized
- Post-marital agreements for married couples who require further clarification about their roles and obligations or to redefine them after a change in circumstances
