Make sure you prenuptial agreement protects you

We recently discussed what happens when you need a prenuptial agreement. These agreements provide a layer of protection for you and your betrothed. Before you say "I do," you should have an agreement in place if you want to use a prenuptial. Make sure that you give yourself and your betrothed ample time to review the agreement terms and learn about what changes might need to be made.

Know what to do when you need a prenuptial agreement

Prenuptial agreements are something that can help keep you protected if something causes your marriage to end. While your ultimate goal for a prenuptial agreement is to protect yourself, you have to ensure that your prenuptial agreement is valid.

Know how to customize a prenuptial agreement for your situation

Prenuptial agreements are very important in almost every marriage. We recently discussed what you can and can't include in these agreements. For example, you can't include child support in a prenuptial agreement because there is a chance that it won't meet current guidelines.

Prenuptial agreements serve to protect your future

If you are getting married, you might wonder if you need to get your spouse-to-be to sign a prenuptial agreement. Once you get past the fact that this agreement makes you think about divorce before you ever say "I do," you can quickly see why the prenuptial agreement can help you.

Prenuptial agreements have specific pros and cons

Prenuptial agreements are important matters for people who have considerable assets coming into a marriage; however, that isn't the limit of what these agreements are suitable for. A prenuptial agreement can help you to protect an inheritance you expect to get. It can also help you to set the tone for how finances will be handled during the marriage.

Consider terms of a prenuptial agreement carefully

Protecting yourself should be a top priority in your life. One way that you can do this is to get a prenuptial agreement before you get married. Even though this isn't something seems like fun to discuss before you get married, it is necessary if you have anything to protect.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can have huge impacts

When your marriage ends, the last thing you might want to do is to deal with your ex on who is going to get the house, the car and the other assets. What if you could avoid having to do this by taking action before you say your vows? This might not seem too enticing; however, planning from the get-go can save you a lot of trouble in the future.

Take steps to ensure your prenuptial agreement is enforceable

Before you get married, you want to have a prenuptial agreement in place to make sure that your financial situation remains intact if you and your betrothed end up divorcing. You know the importance of having the agreement, but simply having it isn't enough. You have to make sure that it is legally valid so that it can't be declared invalid if the time comes for you to use it.

Prenuptial agreements can protect you in the future

Prenuptial agreements are a vital component of many marriages. For some people, such as those in the military, prenuptial agreements can provide protections that are very valuable. A few weeks ago, we discussed how a prenuptial agreement can help in a military marriage. We know that you might be concerned about bringing up a prenuptial agreement, but there is a chance that you are worrying about nothing.

Take proper steps before a military marriage

Members of the military need to take special steps to protect their interests before they get married. This is because marriages that last 20 years while the service member serves 20 years and 20 years of each of those overlap can lead to claims under the 20/20/20 rule if the couple gets divorced.
