Family law: Using prenuptial agreements to determine pet custody

Many couples in Virginia think of their pets as part of their family. Often, if the couple chooses to divorce, the question of what happens to the pet is a complicated one, with both people wanting to keep the pet in their lives. Because many states treat pets as property, a custody or visitation arrangement will not be ordered by the court. Fortunately, couples with pets who are considering marriage do have family law options available to them.

Family law: The role of a prenuptial agreement in Virginia

When couples in Virginia choose to marry, they often do so with the expectation that they will spend the rest of their lives together. However, when many people today do walk down the aisle, many already have significant assets that they have acquired up to that point. Once they get married, however, family law could dictate how certain property will be divided should the marriage end in divorce.

Family law: Woman seeks custody of dog

Couples in Virginia and across the country often decide that their relationship is no longer functional and that it is in the best interests of both parties to seek a new beginning. Regardless of whether the couple is married, if there are children involved, both parents have certain rights to their children to help ensure they are able to maintain their relationship. However, in most states, including Virginia, this same consideration does not extend to pets, sometimes creating conflict in courts of family law.

Why people use a prenuptial agreement for a 2nd marriage

After years of working, people in Virginia often acquire a great deal of assets. They may have a home that they have worked to purchase as well as retirement funds meant to support them in their later years. As a result, couples who are older when they marry -- either for the first time or as a remarriage -- often have additional considerations than those marrying for the first time while they are still young and with few assets. As such, many turn to a prenuptial agreement to protect their assets as well as carefully lay out how funds will be spent during the marriage.
