For many couples, the thought of getting a prenuptial agreement may seem unromantic and even unnecessary.

What is a Prenup?

A prenup, short for a prenuptial agreement, or premarital agreement, is a written contract that lists the inventory of each party’s assets and liabilities. It spells out how property will be shared once the two individuals are married and how the property will be divided in the event of a divorce.

The Purpose of a Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement may benefit you in many ways. For example:

  • Simplify court proceedings: Having a prenup agreement can greatly reduce the complications that may occur during a divorce.
  • Peace of mind: It can be comforting knowing that you will not lose everything if you and your spouse decide to go your own separate ways.
  • Protect your business from insolvency: You can lose your business if you get a divorce. Your spouse may be entitled to a large percentage of your company and you may be forced to liquidate. Your prenuptial agreement can set forth exactly how the business will be affected in the event of a divorce.
  • Avoid hurting your children during the divorce: There are messy divorces that seriously affect minor children who become unwilling participants in the process. Having a written document about the care of the children can prevent this type of a contentious battle.
  • Protect children from previous marriages: Through a prenuptial agreement, it is possible to pass property to children instead of to your spouse.
  • Save on legal costs: In the event of a divorce, a prenup agreement can simplify the process by reducing legal costs.

An experienced prenuptial agreement lawyer can help you and your partner determine what is best for your future. Because these types of agreements can be a difficult subject to discuss with your significant other, and many are worried that their partner might take offense even at the mention of a prenup agreement, a lawyer may be best situated to present the situation. It is important to remember that both parties must sign the prenuptial agreement. Therefore, it is only legal if both parties agree upon the terms.
