Why A Prenuptial Agreement Can Be A Smart Idea
At first, a prenuptial agreement can seem like a plan to get divorced someday. But actually, when used thoughtfully, a prenup can serve as a contract between spouses that details how you will be proactive in your marriage to each other. It can detail responsibility for future plans, such as retirement savings, education and managing credit card debt. It can also play an important part in your estate plan. If you have children from a previous relationship, you can use the prenup to protect the inheritance rights of your children and grandchildren.
Overall, having a prenuptial agreement in place can give you and your spouse peace of mind that everything is taken care of in advance. To make sure your prenup contains everything you want and preserves your rights, you and your future spouse must each be represented by an experienced attorney. We will assist you in negotiations and make sure the process is as smooth as possible.
What If I Am Already Married?
It is not too late to enjoy the advantages of a prenuptial agreement just because you are already married. A postnuptial agreement can do the same thing for you. The only difference is that you and your spouse negotiate and execute the agreement during your marriage, not before.
