Protecting Couples’ Futures With Prenuptial Agreements

Many people incorrectly assume that having a prenuptial agreement lays the groundwork for mistrust in a marriage. Quite the contrary. A prenuptial agreement can give both parties a clear understanding where they stand financially from the very beginning. By negotiating these issues now, couples can hopefully avoid big money fights that so often lead to divorce.

Why Create A Prenuptial Agreement?

When done correctly, prenuptial or premarital agreements can have a significant impact on how assets will be divided should a marriage end in divorce. They can be especially useful to protect inheritance rights or shield assets from children from previous marriages. Business owners may also benefit from a comprehensive marital agreement.

Poorly drafted prenuptial agreements can be dismissed by the courts, leaving you to fight out issues in court.

It is important to realize that getting a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement does not mean you are getting divorced or even contemplating it. It is simply a way for you and your spouse to have mutual security and understanding when it comes to your finances.

What Is A Postnuptial Agreement?

A postnuptial agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement, except it is created after the parties are already married. While not common, a postnuptial agreement can protect an individual’s assets from being included in marital property division in a divorce. If you received a large inheritance or your spouse has taken on significant personal debt, it may be beneficial to obtain a postnuptial agreement.
