Prenuptial agreements no longer belong to just the wealthy. Today many couples are waiting longer to marry or are getting remarried and have children from a prior marriage or relationship. As a result each has significant assets and children to protect financially. Couples benefit from a premarital agreement that addresses the needs of each party. An agreement can characterize separate property assets, limit spousal support and the division of marital property in the event of a divorce.
A premarital agreement provides an understanding from the outset of each other’s financial attitude entering the marriage. A well-crafted and clearly defined premarital agreement can avoid an expensive and litigious divorce. All couples should address their financial expectations prior to marriage to avoid the emotional pitfalls that may come from failure to do so.
