Are you seeking to protect your assets or have you been asked to sign a prenuptial agree-ment? It’s important to know and protect your rights. Of course couples don’t enter into a marriage with the plan of eventually getting divorced. Yet, the sad reality is, over 50% of marriages end in divorce in the United States. A prenuptial agreement, also known as a premarital or antenuptial agreement, can be a wise path to take before entering into a marriage. You and your partner can plan and agree to how all financial issues (and even non-financial issues) will be handled between yourselves in the event of divorce or death. This leads to predictability and far less hassle, acrimony, and expense down the road. Another way of looking at it is that, without a prenup, instead of you and your partner making these important decisions between yourselves, the government will make them for you should you ever get divorced — at that point it is often too late to change the outcome.

 

When making a prenuptial agreement, it’s important to have a qualified and experienced prenuptial agreement lawyer listen to your goals, advise you, and draft the agreement so that it is both enforceable and can achieve exactly what you want. If done correctly, you may very well end up thanking yourself 100 times over many years from now.
