Learn More About The Benefits Of A Prenuptial  Agreement

There are many reasons people will seek out a prenuptial agreement, which may also be called a premarital agreement. Most people think of a prenuptial  agreement as protection only rich people need. This is simply not the truth. No matter your age, financial situation or sexual orientation, a prenup can be an extremely helpful tool as you prepare for marriage.

First, what is a prenuptial agreement? Simply put, it is a contract that allows people to set certain terms regarding a dissolution of the marriage, should one occur, or the death of a spouse.

Some of the issues that can be settled using a prenuptial agreement are:

  • Spousal maintenance
  • Property division
  • Attorney’s fees and litigation expenses

When Should A Prenuptial Agreement Should Be Considered?

  • Spouses who will be creating blended families
  • Couples who have significant income or asset differences
