Prenuptial Agreements – are they right for you?

Whether you were married for one year or 50 years, divorce is never easy. It is often one of the most trying times in your life; one of the most emotionally charged events that you will ever go through. It is very personal to each couple, and no two situations are the same. There are ways to mitigate stressful divorce issues. One such way is to have a prenuptial agreement put in place prior to marriage.

Many engaged couples might think even the mere mention of the term Prenuptial Agreement means setting your divorce up for failure but it isn’t.  It is a realistic way to approach the life you are going to build together as a married couple. Consider this, one of the most common reasons people choose to divorce is related to financial matters and one of the main reasons divorces can take years to finalize is due to disagreements regarding finances. A Premarital Order (another term for Prenuptial Agreement) can be personalized to your financial situation to ensure that if, and only if, circumstances change and you no longer wish to remain married, your divorce is much easier on both parties. Otherwise, it can stay on the back burner protecting your rights as you enter into the marriage.

Some would say that this type of agreement can even strengthen the relationship as it serves to remove any potential financial conflict that can arise. Aside from a marriage license, it might just be one of the most important documents you will require prior to the happy ceremony. Whether you have drafted an agreement together or have just considered the possibility of a prenup, both parties should seek separate counsel to guide them through the process and either draft or review any arrangements you both wish to have put in place.

If you are engaged and have concerns about such things as protecting inheritance rights or simply wish to protect your financial future or the financial future of your soon-to-be spouse, it is beneficial to seek legal counsel as early as possible. A Family Law attorney experienced with drafting and reviewing Prenuptial Agreements can ensure both parties enter into the marriage with confidence.
