Protect Your Future with a Prenuptial Agreement
Prenuptial agreements, also known as premarital agreements or prenuptial agreements, are legal agreements that are made between two people who are planning to get married. These agreements lay out the future expectations and plans of the individuals and their respective assets. If the couple decides to get married, the prenuptial agreement will serve as a roadmap for their financial future. If the couple decides to get divorced, the prenuptial agreement will help them navigate the property division process more easily.
What is a Prenuptial Agreement?
A prenuptial agreement is a legal document that outlines the assets, property, and finances of a person in advance of them getting married.
A prenuptial agreement can include:
- How property will be divided in the event of a divorce
- How assets will be divided in the event of a divorce
- How child support and alimony will be determined
Why get a prenuptial agreement?
There are many reasons why you may want to get a prenuptial agreement:
- Protect yourself from future alimony and asset division in the event of a divorce
- Protect your property from being used to pay for the marital debts accrued during the marriage
- Protect the future inheritance of your children or grandchildren
- Ensure that your assets are protected if you are deemed incapacitated
