How a Prenuptial Agreement can Help You
While drafting a prenuptial agreement might seem like a pessimistic thing to do before a marriage, it can prove to be a necessary and beneficial plan to determine how finances will be worked out in the relationship. A prenuptial agreement simply outlines how each spouse will be assured that their property and finances are protected should an unexpected event occur. There are numerous benefits of a prenuptial agreement, the primary one being the peace of mind it yields for both parties in the marriage.
Terms of a Prenuptial Agreement
Prenuptial agreements can outline several elements of a marriage that are often crucial to a married couple’s future. Premarital agreements typically cover the following terms:
- Property rights for each individual
- Property that will be passed on to children from a previous marriage
- The right to buy, sell, or exchange property
- Division of property or assets upon separation or death
- Creating a will or trust
- Ownership of a life insurance policy
While the benefits of a prenuptial agreement are many, drafting these contracts can quickly become confusing and frustrating for couples who are already focused on wedding planning. This is why an experienced family law attorney can be an invaluable asset in discussing and arranging a prenuptial agreement with your future spouse.
