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.
We understand that you might have some questions about a prenuptial agreement. We can help you to learn about the specifics of how a prenuptial agreement might help you to protect your assets and lay the foundation for what happens if the marriage doesn’t work out.
Your asset and income level don’t matter
It is important for you to realize that you can’t avoid creating a prenuptial agreement simply because you don’t have considerable assets or a high income. A prenuptial agreement can provide protections for anyone, including people who have average incomes.
Be specific in the terms of the agreement
When you create the prenuptial agreement, you should be as specific as possible. The terms of the agreement must be fair or it might get thrown out when you need the court to enforce the terms. Having everything spelled out clearly and concisely is imperative because it doesn’t leave room for anyone to guess what a specific term in the agreement means for you.
Make sure it is legally binding
Ultimately, you have to ensure that the agreement is legally binding when it is signed. You also have to make sure that it stays that way. We can help you every step of the way. We want you to rest assured that your interests are protected by the prenuptial agreement you are counting on to do the job.
