Should I Create a Marital Agreement?
A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can benefit all couples, regardless of their assets. That said, some situations may warrant them more than others.
Below are some circumstances in which you should consider creating a marital agreement:
- One or both of you has substantial debt
- One or both of you is bringing significant property into the marriage
- It is the second marriage for you or your spouse
- One or both of you has children from a previous relationship
- One or both of you wishes to keep your respective estates secure
- One or both of you is starting a new business
An effective prenuptial or postnuptial agreement will override state laws that typically determine how marital assets and property are divided. As a result, the divorce process will be substantially more efficient, incurring fewer legal fees, taking less time, and sparing unnecessary heartache for all parties involved.
Moreover, since you will create this agreement at a time when you have each other’s best interests at heart, it will ensure a fairer settlement during the stress and contentiousness of a divorce if your marriage is dissolved.
