If you’re facing a legal situation, you probably have a lot of questions for your attorney. If the legal matter is regarding a divorce, you may have questions about the process and how to get things started. If you’re a couple that is planning to get married, you will have questions before you tie the knot, especially if you are considering getting a prenuptial agreement and finding ways to protect your property and assets.
If you are considering getting a prenuptial agreement, you may want to ask your attorney the following questions:
- What can be included in a prenuptial agreement?
- What will happen if I don’t get a prenuptial agreement?
- How long does the process take?
- What happens if my soon-to-be spouse doesn’t agree to the terms?
Prenuptial agreements are not always easy to understand and that’s why getting answers to your questions is vital. Not only can an attorney help answer your questions, they can help you ensure that your agreement is valid and won’t be thrown out by a judge if you and your spouse were to divorce. This will save you time, money and energy in the long run.
Couples do not often view prenuptial agreements as romantic, but depending on their financial status, they may view it as necessary. Prenuptial agreements can be complicated to devise and execute properly, so speaking with an attorney is the best way to make sure your questions are answered and your interests are protected.
