Don’t overlook the future value of a prenuptial agreement

On Behalf of | Feb 21, 2017 | Family Law |

Are you closing in on your wedding day? Are you looking forward to spending the rest of your life with your soon to be husband or wife?

As excited as you may be, now’s the time to think about the potential of something going wrong in the future. For example, you could be faced with the divorce process at some point down the road. While you hope this doesn’t happen, you never know what the future holds. For this reason, you should never overlook the future value of a prenuptial agreement.

Generally speaking, you can consider a prenuptial agreement an insurance policy against divorce. With this, you can take steps in protecting your finances in the result of divorce.

For example, maybe you’re bringing assets of great value into the marriage. Or maybe you’re the owner of a successful business. If you neglect to create a prenuptial agreement, these assets or business ownership could be subject to property division in the event of a divorce.

We know that creating a prenuptial agreement is easier said than done. After all, it’s never easy to discuss this with your soon to be spouse. Even so, you shouldn’t shy away from learning more.

Once you realize what you can and can’t do with a prenuptial agreement, you’ll realize that it holds some value in regards to the future. You are not required to create this type of legal arrangement, but it definitely has its benefits. As long as you and your partner are on the same page, it may be time to move in this direction.
