Prenuptial agreements can be vital to protecting the interests of both you and your soon to be spouse. While many couples avoid discussing this uncomfortable subject, a prenuptial agreement can become very valuable in the future. Asking your fiancée to sign a prenuptial agreement does not mean that you lack faith in the strength of the relationship. It just means that you are hoping to minimize stress and expense in the event problems arise in the future.
A prenuptial agreement is especially important if you own your own business or if you have acquired significant assets or wealth prior to the marriage. They can be used to help protect your children arising from a prior relationship and/or your employees or business partners.
It is imperative that both parties obtain their own legal counsel when a prenuptial agreement is being negotiated. Our attorneys have written many prenuptial agreements and have had them enforced through the courts.
