Kaley Cuoco’s prenup requires her to pay spousal support
When people mention a prenuptial agreement to their future spouse, they may not be too thrilled about the idea. While some people view prenuptial agreements as unromantic, others realize that they are actually a good idea if they have significant property and assets because it protects them from losing everything in the event of a divorce. Not only does it keep people protected, but it can also make the divorce process go a bit more smoothly since most divorce issues, like alimony and property division, will be addressed and resolved in the agreement.
In recent news, actress Kaley Cuoco, who has filed for divorce from her husband of almost two years, was lucky enough to have signed a prenup, so her soon-to-be ex husband will only be able to receive what is outlined in their agreement after their divorce is granted. Very little was revealed about the couple’s prenup, but it was reported that the agreement contains stipulations about the actress’s spousal support payments. The prenup also allegedly states what property and assets each spouse will receive after the divorce is finalized.
Cuoco is not the first celebrity to have a prenuptial agreement. With celebrities often making millions every year, it is a good idea for them to at least consider a prenup when they first decide to marry someone. If they don’t, they run the risk of having a less favorable decision regarding the division of their property and assets with their spouse.
Anyone who is planning to marry and is interested in getting a prenuptial agreement should consider contacting an attorney. Divorces happen, but that doesn’t mean spouses should walk away with half of each other’s belongings. To be sure their property and assets are protected, getting a premarital agreement may be the best option, so people don’t have to worry about their spouse being awarded half or a majority of everything they have built before or during the marriage.
