We recently gave you some tips for handling a prenuptial agreement. Today’s tips are designed to ensure that the prenuptial agreement is valid. The last thing that you need is an issue invalidating your document just when you need it the most.
We know that you might feel a bit awkward contemplating the end of a marriage before it has even begun. But consider how devastating it could be if you do get divorced and lose everything. You worked hard for your assets, and it would be a shame to take a loss because you thought it was tacky to ask for a prenuptial agreement.
Premarital agreements aren’t meant to protect one party and not the other. Instead, these agreements protect both spouses. Remember, an agreement that skews heavily toward one party is almost certainly going to be invalidated by the court if challenged.
When you are ready to approach the subject of a prenup, we are here to help you broach the subject with your intended. This can include drafting the legal document, helping you present it and addressing any changes that need to be made after your betrothed reviews the agreement.
Make sure that you don’t wait until the last minute to get your prenup drafted and signed. Rather, you need to plan for this as soon as you get engaged. This gives us plenty of time to work through any possible issues that might arise.
As you think about the prenup, make sure that you think about how it will impact your future and how your betrothed might view the agreement. This might help you decide what should be included to make it fair and equitable for you both.
