One in three of all first marriages end in divorce, as well as fifty percent of second or third marriages. A prenuptial agreement is a smart financial tool, since marriage is not just an emotional union – it’s also a financial union. A pre-nuptial agreement and the discussions that go with it can help ensure the financial well-being of the marriage.
Couples without a prenuptial agreement will have their assets divided by the court if the marriage ends and if they disagree about who should get what. Without a prenuptial agreement, assets could end up in the hands of your spouse’s children from a previous marriage instead of your own children.
For that reason, you need an attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable about the laws regarding pre-nuptial agreements.
