Do I Really Need a Prenup?
There is a misconception that prenuptial agreements are only for the wealthy. However, anyone can benefit from having a prenuptial agreement, regardless of the assets you have.
Below are some reasons why some may choose to create a prenuptial agreement:
- Spouses want to clarify their financial rights and responsibilities. Understanding your rights and responsibilities in a marriage can help minimize conflict and set clear expectations.
- Spouses want to protect themselves from each other’s debts.
- Spouses with children from previous marriages may want to ensure some of their property is passed onto them when they die. Without a prenuptial agreement, the surviving spouse may be able to claim most of that property, leaving very little for the kids.
- Most importantly, a prenuptial agreement will minimize conflict in a divorce. With much of the most contentious issues addressed and resolved in this important document, it will make the divorce process go a lot more smoothly and quickly, which is ultimately beneficial for everyone involved.
If your needs change years into the marriage, it is possible to make some modifications to the agreement as long as your spouse signs off on the changes.
Additionally, to ensure your prenuptial agreement is valid and legally enforceable, it is important not to include anything that can potentially invalidate it, such as child-related matters. Keep in mind that issues like child custody and child support are based on the best interests of the child and should not be included in a prenuptial agreement.
