Marital Agreements – Prenuptial & Premarital Agreements
The need for a prenuptial agreement may be one of the most difficult issues to discuss with your future partner.
Prenuptial agreements address property and financial issues in the event of divorce. Prenuptial agreements can provide reassurance for those who enter into marriage with substantial assets. A spouse who is marrying someone with considerable debt would also benefit from a prenuptial agreement.
Prenuptial agreements can offer peace of mind during marriage regarding what would happen in a divorce, and can minimize hostilities over dividing up the marital property. Both parties should have the agreement drafted and reviewed by an attorney so that all possible consequences are fully understood.
