Although previously considered controversial, prenuptial agreements (often referred to as “prenups”) are becoming more commonplace. They offer couples who are getting married the security of an agreement regarding such topics as spousal support and property distribution in the case of divorce or the death of one spouse.

You will find that Mari’s advice and input on this matter will allow you to fully cover all bases and create a prenuptial agreement that will be best for you and your future spouse.
Statistics have shown that about one in three of all first marriages, and an astounding 50 percent of second or third marriages, end in divorce. With the divorce rate being so high, it is wise to invest time into the planning of your long term financial future. When you get a divorce without a prenuptial agreement, your spouse will typically be entitled to a percentage of your personal property such as your house, stocks, and retirement. With a prenuptial agreement, the two of you can lock in the division of assets that is right for you from the outset, rather than letting a Judge decide how to divide your assets in a divorce. In order to avoid what can be a devastating financial loss, you should consider getting a prenuptial agreement.
Ideally, both parties entering into a prenuptial agreement should have separate legal counsel to review the agreement and ensure that they are properly advised about the agreement’s potential impact on their rights. Contact us to determine if a prenuptial agreement is right for your circumstances.
