Safeguarding Your Assets And Interests Before They Get Tangled By Marriage
Divorce separates assets and re-defines financial relationships. Despite this fact, the process can be uncertain. Prenuptial agreements seek to pre-define how marital dissolution will be handled. Some couples feel that resolving these issues on the front end makes the marital relationship more stable and therefore less likely to dissolve.
In a prenuptial agreement, the individuals identify all of their assets to the other, in writing, so that everything is on the table, fully disclosed. Further, the couple expresses how they will resolve financial issues in the event of a divorce.
Will alimony be paid? If so, how much and for how long? How will the property issues be resolved? For couples with significant assets before marriage, including businesses, multiple properties, investments and more, a prenuptial agreement can be particularly useful to consider.
These issues most often arise when something has occurred in the marriage which has raised the specter of divorce, such as infidelity or other grounds for divorce. In some cases, couples have decided it preferable to remain together, under terms which set out how the parties will behave and what the financial arrangements will be, both during the pendency of the marriage and, in the event of a breach of the postnuptial agreement, in the event of divorce.
