Premarital Agreement

Some couples choose to enter into an agreement prior to marriage in order to make each of their respective rights clear.  In Virginia, a premarital agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. As with all contracts, each party must enter into a premarital agreement voluntarily.  In addition, a party may challenge a premarital agreement on the grounds that it was unconscionable when executed or that a party did not make a fair disclosure to the other prior to the execution of the agreement.  Common provisions in a premarital agreement include:

  • The rights and obligations of each of the parties in any of the property of either or both of them;
  • The disposition of property upon separation, marital dissolution or death of either party;
  • Spousal support

The attorneys of Buchbauer & McGuire are experienced in drafting Premarital Agreements tailored to the specific needs and concerns of our clients.
