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.
We understand that addressing a breakup before you walk down the aisle might not be something that you want to do. Typically, addressing a prenuptial agreement well in advance of the big day can bring you and your betrothed some peace. Even though this means thinking of the unpleasant, it lets both of you know what to expect. It lets you know that you won’t have to go through a battle over every asset that you amass.
If you have already said “I do” and don’t have a prenuptial agreement, you can still have some level of protection if you and your spouse work out a postnuptial agreement. Just as prenuptial agreement does, this agreement lays out what will happen if you and your spouse split.
We can help you to learn about what you need to do to ensure that a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is legally valid. There are certain conditions that must be present in these cases. We can discuss these with you as they pertain to your case. Once you know what needs to be done, you can move forward with getting the document together that can protect you if you end up single down the road.
