Be Proactive by Getting a Premarital Agreement
Whether you are getting married for the first time, or you have done this before, a prenuptial agreement is important. This document allows you to protect your property. It allows your future spouse to protect his or her property. It allows both of you to protect your respective estates so they can pass on appropriately to your children. Simply put, getting a prenuptial agreement is being proactive.
At the law firm of Matthews & Jones L.L.P., we can help you take this proactive step. We will see that full and fair disclosure of both parties’ assets and debts takes place. In addition, we can time the creation of the document appropriately, since it needs to be created at least 60 days prior to the wedding.
Do I Need A Prenuptial Agreement?
You are getting married. You want your marriage to last. You don’t want to think about the possibility of it ending prematurely in divorce. Despite this, we encourage you to consider the fact that circumstances can change. If they do, and a divorce is necessary, a prenuptial agreement will make things easier. If your marriage lasts, and we hope it does, then you have lost only the small amount of time and money put into the creation of the agreement.
Prenuptial Agreements Provide the Peace of Mind You and Your Loved One Need
It is important to note that prenuptial agreements protect both parties, as well as children. Typically, these agreements focus on how property will be handled.
- How property will be passed on to children from a previous marriage in case you die before your new spouse.
- How family heirlooms will be divided.
- How family-owned businesses and business interests will be divided.
- How alimony will be handled in the case of a divorce.
In addition to handling prenuptial agreements, our law firm can assist with the creation of post-nuptial agreements. Essentially, crafting such an agreement serves to anticipate and resolve most of the major disputes involved in a divorce before they have a chance to cause problems for you and your spouse.
