We recently discussed some common myths about prenuptial agreements. Anyone who is getting married should familiarize themselves with these. You might think that your current financial situation isn’t conducive to one of the agreements, but this isn’t the type of thinking that is going to protect you. We are here to discuss the benefits of a prenup with you and help you to work through the process of creating one.

When you are trying to decide whether you need a prenuptial agreement or not, you need to think about the future. This can help you to determine what type of agreement is necessary. As you do this, remember that the document can’t be one-sided. Instead, it has to offer equal protection for both parties. We can help you to ensure that your agreement is legally valid.

Another consideration that you need to think of when you are trying to work out a prenup is the possibility of future inheritances. These funds typically aren’t divided when a couple divorces; however, they might be subjected to the property division process if the funds were comingled with other marital assets. Having these assets covered in the premarital agreement can protect the recipient in the future.

We know that you might think it will be unnecessarily difficult to talk to your future spouse about the prenup. Just remember that you should be able to discuss anything with this person. Having the protections that the agreement brings in place before you say, “I do,” can help you enjoy more financial stability during your marriage. We can help you to get everything in place so that you can move forward with your plans.
