No one gets married with the idea in their mind that that marriage will end someday, but if that day should come, it pays to be prepared for it. A prenuptial agreement is not betting on the marriage ending; it is simply something you are glad to have in case you need it.
We at Greenwood Law know that this is a delicate subject for engaged couples, which is why it pays to have an attorney who handles the situation as such.
Why You Need A Prenuptial Agreement
We know that it is hard to tell your loved one that you want a prenuptial agreement, but keep in mind that it is only for the benefit of the two of you. While it may be a difficult conversation to have with your intended spouse, addressing how the two of you would divide your assets in the event of a divorce or death is simply smart financial planning. By spelling out what the two of you have agreed to, you both will appreciate how prepared you are if death or divorce surprises you.
A prenuptial agreement protects not just you and your loved one, but also your children. A prenuptial agreement becomes useful for a couple in a second marriage who want to reserve assets for their children from the previous marriage.
