Prenuptial Agreements Can Be Incredibly Beneficial to Both Parties
When you hear the words "prenuptial agreement," what do you think of? Most people see prenuptial agreements as a means to protect someone's money from an enterprising spouse who may only be interested in them for their money. Though they have had a bad reputation in the past, prenuptial agreements are a way for a couple to plan for the future.
In a prenup, you can identify what will happen to your property and assets in the event of death or divorce. Many couples also use a prenuptial agreement to plan how any debts either party brings to the marriage will be handled. You can also use a prenuptial agreement to set aside an inheritance for any previous children you have.
Though this is not something you want to think about, being prepared for the unexpected can give you peace of mind. In the event the marriage ends, you and your former spouse will use the prenuptial agreement to help guide the divorce process. With a prenuptial agreement in place, you and your spouse will not have to fight over divorce terms, and instead, the divorce process can proceed more smoothly.
What Can't You Do with a Prenup?
Prenuptial agreements are indeed incredibly versatile legal documents. However, they are not unlimited. There are several things that you cannot accomplish with a prenuptial agreement. Additionally, though the court will likely recognize and uphold a legally valid prenuptial agreement, there are cases in which they won't. For example, if the prenuptial agreement overwhelmingly disadvantages one party, the courts may not uphold it.
Things that cannot be included in a prenup include:
- Child custody
- Child support
Both future spouses must sign prenuptial agreements, which will then go into effect after the wedding. If the marriage never takes place, the prenuptial agreement remains invalid.
Why You Need an Attorney
Many couples can benefit from a prenuptial agreement, regardless of whether they come into the marriage with a large estate or nothing. If you and your future spouse plan on having a prenuptial agreement, you each should secure legal representation. It is recommended that each party have their own legal counsel when drafting a prenuptial agreement to ensure that their best interests are being represented.
