There is no formal legal separation in Virginia. You do not have to go to Court to be separated. You simply separate. However, before you do so, there are lots of factors for you to consider and the actions you take at this time could have long lasting ramifications in future legal proceedings.
The benefits of having an agreement are numerous, with the chief among them being that the parties decide rather than the judge.
Prenuptial agreements are not simply for the older couple on their second or third marriage, prenups are for anyone, young or older, who wish to set out the legal rights and obligations of the couple in the event of a divorce.
In Virginia, a premarital agreement shall be in writing and signed by both parties. Such an agreement shall be enforceable without consideration and shall become effective upon marriage.
