TEAMWORK CAN CREATE A VALUABLE PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT
As an adult, you have a duty to protect your interests. It is all too easy to think that your upcoming nuptials don’t require any protection; however, having a prenuptial agreement in place is a responsible decision that you and your betrothed can make together. This doesn’t mean that you expect the marriage to fail. Instead, it is a good opportunity to make sure that you and your future spouse are on the same page about finances.
Prenups were sometimes thought to be just for the wealthy. This isn’t at all the case. Even individuals who aren’t coming into a marriage with a lot of assets can benefit from these agreements. They can cover things like future inheritances. We know that this can be a difficult topic to address with your partner, but it can be very rewarding.
This agreement isn’t something that should be rushed. In fact, trying to rush through it could mean that the whole thing is invalid. Instead, you and your soon-to-be spouse should discuss the points that need to be included so that you can work out the terms now.
There are some points that you can’t include in these agreements. Child custody matters, for example, can’t be included. This is because the needs of the child would have to be considered at the time of a split. You can’t see into the future so you can’t predict what those needs will be.
We are here to help you learn about how to protect your interests using a prenuptial agreement. We can work with you to make sure that the agreement is legal and binding so you are covered if you ever need to use the document.
