Myths about Prenuptial Agreements
The modern reality is that prenuptial agreements are no longer just for fabulously wealthy couples with a staggering amount of assets or second marriages where there are children from prior marriages. No matter your net worth, no matter your situation, there are ways a prenuptial agreement can help you and your family.
The worry that a prenuptial agreement undermines your marriage is another myth: They are not just about dividing property if you divorce. Prenuptial agreements can be useful for estate planning. A prenuptial agreement can be used to cover what would happen if one of you were to pass away. A prenuptial agreement can also detail financial responsibilities and goals for your marriage. Our New Canaan attorney can help you draft an agreement that suits your family’s needs.
When all is said and done, a prenuptial agreement can cover:
- Estate planning in the event of the death of either spouse
- Alimony in the event of divorce
- Division of property brought to the marriage in the event of divorce
- Division of property acquired after the marriage in the event of divorce
- How expenses are handled during the marriage
Basically, a prenuptial agreement can cover most anything you and your fiancé feel is important. Of course, you cannot agree to anything that would be illegal. Also, provisions regarding children are unenforceable as these are ultimately matters for a judge to review.
