Marital agreements are contracts between two spouses and can be used to accommodate a broad range of issues during the marriage. In many cases, marital agreements are used to protect the spouses' separate property rights. In others, they are used to establish each spouse's rights and responsibilities in the event that the spouses separate or the marriage comes to an end.
No matter what your needs may be with regard to a marital agreement, you would do well to seek the advice of a qualified Northern Virginia family law lawyer before you sign anything. Many couples attempt to develop their own agreements in an effort to save on attorney fees. Most people do not understand their rights in these situations, however, and many sign marital agreements that provide little protection and often leave them extremely vulnerable.
