It is very common for people who divorce to decide to get remarried. Of course, while a new marriage holds new possibilities, it also holds risks. If you’re considering getting remarried after a divorce, be sure that you take the proper steps to protect yourself and your fairly before you enter into another marriage.

If you endured your first divorce without the help of a prenuptial agreement, then you probably understand just how valuable having a prenup is. While it is hopeful that your new relationship benefits from your past experiences and you’ve chosen your new partner using this hard-gained wisdom, you should still consider protecting your current assets using a prenup.

Prenuptial agreements can help make sure that the life you have now remains intact if things go south in the new marriage. Do you have a business? Be sure to protect it before it converts to marital property. You can even use a prenup to protect the person you marry from your debt, and vice versa.

Do you have children from a previous relationship? Be sure that they don’t get cut out of your estate by protecting them in your prenup.

There are hundreds of good reasons to create a prenuptial agreement for your marriage. When two partners choose to use a prenup, they must disclose very sensitive information about their personal financial lives. Creating a prenup with a person you love is also a good way to address financial habits and expectations before you enter a marriage and ultimately build a stronger relationship.

If you believe that a prenup is a good fit for your next marriage, don’t hesitate to reach out to an experienced attorney who can help you create a strong document that represents and protects your interests and rights.
