Creating A Prenuptial Agreement That Works

Is A Prenuptial Agreement Right For Me?
There is no easy answer to that question. For young couples who do not yet have many assets, a prenuptial agreement may not be necessary. If you are already independently wealthy and getting married again or for the first time, it may make more sense to have a lawyer assist you in negotiating one. A prenuptial agreement can protect any:
- Real estate properties acquired before the marriage
- Investments and business ownership stakes
- Trust funds and future inheritances
- Luxury items that have monetary values
It can also address how you will share expenses during the marriage and which purchases you do and do not consider to be marital property. It can provide for children, alimony and estate planning as well.
If you already have children, a prenuptial agreement can ensure that they will receive the assets you want them to receive. Our lawyers can assist you in drafting a prenuptial agreement that will stand the test of time. We will use our skills and knowledge to protect your assets while considering any future implications that the agreement will have.
