One of the best things that you can do when you are planning your wedding is to discuss a prenuptial agreement with your future spouse. Many people tend to think of prenups as a negative component of the engagement and marriage. But there isn’t anything negative about wanting to protect yourself and the other person.
Some people don’t realize that a prenuptial agreement offers protections for both sides. They can’t be one-sided or overly favor one spouse. Instead, they have to be fair to both parties. We can help you to come up with a prenuptial agreement that meets the legal requirements for this.
If you are going to have a prenup, make sure that you address this early in the engagement. Premarital agreements can’t be sprung on the bride or groom when they are getting ready to walk down the aisle. Both need to have time to allow their attorneys to review the document and ensure that it is in their clients’ best interests to sign it.
We know that you might be concerned about asking for a prenuptial agreement. It might help if you think about it as a strong financial foundation for your marriage. This is a good springboard for addressing financial views. You can discuss how money matters will be handled in the marriage. We realize this might be a challenge, but you should be able to talk about anything with your betrothed.
Once you decide that a prenup is necessary, you have to ensure that it complies with applicable laws. We are here to help you do this.
