Protecting Yourself With A Prenuptial Agreement
There is a lot that a couple needs to do to prepare for their wedding. Creating a guest list, choosing a venue and picking a menu are all common tasks that a couple works on in their marriage, but there is one thing that many couples overlook: prenuptial agreements. These agreements act as a seat belt or safety net in a marriage. Although neither spouse ever wants to need one, they will both be happy to have it should the day ever come.
At Perez Family Law, you can find the help of an experienced family law legal team. I am attorney Amilcar J. Perez, and I have been helping couples develop prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that meet their unique needs for years. There is a lot that these agreements have to offer, and I want to help you protect your best interests with one of your own.
The Benefits Of A Prenuptial Agreement
A prenuptial agreement, in short, makes the act of divorcing much simpler by creating the terms of the divorce at the time the agreement is created. These agreements can address matters such as:
- Dividing assets
- Splitting retirement accounts
- Specify who keeps what debts in the divorce
- Confirm spousal support agreements
- Protect inheritance
I work closely with my clients to identify the unique needs in their situation to develop a goal in their prenuptial agreement that protects their needs the most.
Making a prenuptial agreement is not about expecting your marriage to end; it is about protecting both parties through a divorce if it should ever happen. Just like a life insurance policy, it is much better to have one and not need it than it is to need one and not have one.
