Prenuptial agreements are sensitive subjects. No one ever enters into a marriage thinking about parting ways. Many couples believe that such arrangements are completely unnecessary, and even broaching the subject can become a huge argument. Nevertheless, a prenuptial agreement can protect you and your spouse from many things in the future you can’t expect now.
What is a Prenuptial Agreement?
Prenuptial agreements are designed to protect the individual assets and property of each person before marriage. There can be many reasons for wanting to have such an agreement in place before getting married, but the usual purpose is to protect assets. For instance, you might have a trust your family left you that your family expects won’t be taken in case of a divorce. A prenuptial agreement can protect that trust. Before signing a prenuptial agreement, it’s a good idea to get the advice of an experienced family law attorney who can advise you sound advice.
Often one spouse will enter into a marriage with considerably more assets than the other. They might expect to earn more income. A good prenuptial agreement takes time and takes into full account the assets of both spouses so that if a divorce happens, the split is fair and considers their initial positions. Having a complete and thorough disclosure of all assets and liabilities for both partners before signing the final document is wise.
