Prenuptial Agreements Archives

Couples are getting postnuptial agreements

Many married couples live in the Fort Worth, Texas, and Tarrant, Texas, areas. Sometimes, couple's marriages end in divorce, resulting in property division that is often acrimonious. That acrimony can be precluded by prenuptial agreements, which make unambiguously clear how assets are to be divided. However, some couples don't have prenuptial agreements, and wind up pursuing postnuptial agreements instead.

Millennials have good reasons for wanting prenuptial agreements

Millennials are asking for prenuptial agreements much more than what was common in the past. One of the reasons for this is that they are more in tune with their financial goals and they aren't afraid to speak up about this matter.

5 questions to ask before signing a prenup

While you may be ready to say "I do," and spend the rest of your life in wedded bliss, you may find that your soon-to-be spouse wants to talk about signing a prenuptial agreement before he or she strolls down the aisle. Here are some questions you should know the answers to before your marriage license formally binds you two together.

What are the pros and cons of a prenuptial agreement?

It can be difficult to think of your marriage as a business relationship, but when you stop to think about the financial interests in your marriage, it makes it easier. As a business relationship, you need to protect your assets and investments. One way to do so when you will soon be walking down the aisle is to create a prenuptial agreement.

Millennials and divorce

Millennials are getting more life experience before settling down to get married. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Center for Family and Marriage Research have some interesting statistics for married couples, including the following:

Why prenups are being sought out by more millennials and women

Prenups are on the rise among those ages 18 to 35. According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, more than half of all United States family law attorneys have seen an increase in prenups over the last three years than ever before. And, when it comes to millennials, attorneys polled report having seen an increase in those clients requesting prenups from its previous 5-percent to the 25-percent that it is today.

Talking about a prenup without ruining your relationship

One of the main reasons couples don't discuss prenuptial agreements is simply that both people feel nervous to bring it up. They worry that the other person will be angry and might even leave them if they suggest it. However, there are things you can do to gently broach the subject if you think a prenup is important.

Can you sign a prenup the day before your wedding?

So you already agreed to get married, and you've been planning it for months. The big day is quickly drawing near, but you're suddenly getting a bit worried. You still want to get married, but seeing that date so close on the calendar has you thinking about the legal side of the wedding, about signing that contract and about what might happen if you end up getting divorced.
