How to Create A Prenuptial Agreement
A prenuptial agreement, also referred to as a prenup or antenuptial agreement, can protect you even if you don't have significant assets. With the high rate of divorce today, it makes sense to lay out the expectations of the couple in advance while the relationship is amicable, rather than try to resolve conflicts after a split, when emotions are highly charged, and conflicts may need to be resolved through expensive litigation.
What is a Prenup?
A prenuptial agreement form is a marriage contract that defines how the couple will handles issues such as finances, assets, residence, and care of children and dependents, in the event the marriage ends through divorce or death. Even if you don't have significant assets now, there may be the possibility of an inheritance in the future, a career or business advancement, or other circumstance that changes your financial situation. By having an agreement to contract the rights of the parties, it minimizes the chances of a future dispute or misunderstanding.
