Our firm can assist you in determining which terms are acceptable or inappropriate to you and proceed accordingly.
What Can a Prenuptial Agreement Accomplish?
A prenuptial agreement serves as a sort of contingency plan. It will outline what will happen to the couple’s cash and non-cash assets and property should they decide to divorce in the future. Common tenets of prenuptial agreements include, but are not limited to:
- The division of assets & property
- Spousal support
- Who can manage the couple’s assets & in what manner
- Retirement accounts & savings
- What happens in the case of a medical emergency or death of each spouse
- Custody, guardianship, & child support
Should I Sign a Prenuptial Agreement?
Each person has to decide for themselves what they are comfortable with when it comes to prenuptial agreements. It is also important to remember that prenuptial agreements can be negotiated and modified before the wedding. If your soon-to-be-spouse has given you a prenuptial agreement to sign, it’s okay to take your time looking it over and having an attorney assess the terms for you. We can examine the proposed agreement and let you know if we think it protects you or makes you vulnerable to unfair divorce terms if you two should separate. We can also facilitate negotiations between you and your fiance and/or their lawyer.
