Premarital & Prenuptial Agreements
For many, the most pressing challenges of a wedding center on the best way to celebrate saying, “I Do.” For others, the situation is decidedly more complex. There may be children from previous relationships, family legacy assets to consider or previously owned property or businesses that demand protection. Discussing and negotiating a premarital/prenuptial agreement may not be romantic or at the top of your fun-things-to-do list, but it is a way to mitigate any issues if a marriage dissolves down the road. Mahoney & Richmond, PLLC is here to protect your interests from the beginning.
Virginia’s Premarital Agreement Act defines a premarital/prenuptial agreement as an “agreement between prospective spouses made in contemplation of marriage and to be effective upon marriage.” It must be in writing and signed by both prospective spouses.

We understand there is no cookie-cutter method to developing premarital/prenuptial agreements; each couple is unique; we help you analyze and weigh the pros and cons of putting an agreement into place, so you can focus on the celebration … and each other.
