Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Marital agreements. Provides that marital agreements for the purpose of settling the rights and obligations of the spouses need not be in writing and are considered signed by the parties if the terms of the agreement are (i) contained in a court order endorsed by counsel or the parties or (ii) recorded and transcribed by a court reporter and affirmed personally by the parties on the record. This bill addresses Flanary v. Milton, 263 Va. 20 (2002), which held that an oral agreement recited into the record by the parties' attorneys during a deposition was not valid because it was not in writing and signed by the parties as required by 20-149. This bill is identical to HB 2303.
