Is a prenuptial agreement a good idea for you? Learn more

Prenuptial agreements are fantastic if you want to protect yourself and your spouse in the case of a divorce in the future. No one goes into a marriage thinking that it's going to end, but the reality is that many marriages do fizzle out and result in divorce.

There are some things that you need to know about prenuptial agreements, though. Understanding them better can help you decide if they are right for you.

What is a prenuptial agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a private agreement between you and your spouse. It's signed before you're married, and it determines how you will split up your assets if you divorce.

Do you need an attorney to create a prenuptial agreement?

It's a good idea to work with an attorney if you need to create a prenuptial agreement or if your partner wants you to sign one. Your attorney can help you go over the document to make sure it's fair to you and the other party.

You should receive or give the other party the prenuptial agreement long enough in advance of your wedding that you have time to talk about it and make sure it's agreeable. If you don't give the other person enough time or you aren't given enough time to review it, then the courts could overturn it in the case of a divorce.

Your attorney can talk to you more about prenuptial agreements and why they're smart for any couple who's getting married. Our website has more on prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements and other important family law topics.
