Prenuptial Agreements

Amid the starry-eyed romance of courtship and impending marriage, a prenuptial agreement between soon-to-be spouses is simply "good business."

This agreement becomes legal when the marriage does, and spells out provisions that protect the parties for factors financial and not. It also preserves property ownership for children from previous marriages, and makes the details of divorce discussions much easier to execute if the relationship does not survive.

Prenuptial agreements are most effective where they protect the inheritances of children from a previous marriage. Without a prenuptial agreement, a new spouse could object to provisions of a will and end up receiving more money at the expense of children from another marriage. A prenuptial agreement puts protections in place to help ensure that this doesn't happen.
