Why prenups can be useful for all couples

Many spouses-to-be in Virginia may be planning eagerly for their weddings and thinking about venues, dresses and honeymoons. However, experts would also advise them to think about prenuptial agreements. Prenups have a bad name for many people who associate them with planning for divorce before the marriage even begins. Many people also associate prenuptial agreements with greed and a selfish approach that is incompatible with marriage. However, these views of prenuptial agreements derived from media coverage of celebrity divorces and dramatic fiction often diverge from the reality.

Tax Cuts and Jobs Act means changes for divorcing couples

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which Congress passed in late 2017, may affect the finances of people divorcing in Virginia and around the country. In the past, when divorced parents had one child, they could take turns claiming him or her as an exemption. This will no longer be possible. Instead, there is a head of household deduction, and if there is one child, it can only be taken by one parent.
