Prenuptial agreements are something that many engaged couples might not have thought about. Some people still associate these documents only with wealthy individuals. This isn’t the case. Anyone can enjoy the benefits of a prenuptial agreement regardless of their financial status right now. We can help you determine how one might help your situation.
Some engaged individuals think that there is an “ick” factor associated with a premarital agreement. This is because they think of it as a negative thing since it is planning for the end of the marriage. Who wants to think about the possible end of a marriage before it starts? The answer is a person who wants financial protections during the marriage.
When you sit down with your future spouse to come up with the terms of the agreement, you are working on a mutual financial plan that can strengthen your marriage. By knowing what will happen if the marriage doesn’t last, you might feel more secure.
Prenuptial agreements have to be fairly even. They can’t favor one party over the other. Additionally, they can’t be signed in haste. We can help you determine what you need to do to ensure that the agreement is legally enforceable if it is ever needed.
