What is a Prenuptial Agreement?
A prenuptial agreement, or commonly known as a "prenup," is considered a legally binding document a couple creates before marriage or a civil partnership. This agreement outlines the rights and responsibilities of each party in the event of a divorce, separation, or the death of one spouse. While some may view prenuptial agreements as anticipating the worst, we believe they serve as a proactive and responsible approach to safeguarding both parties' interests.
What Does a Prenuptial Agreement Cover?
Prenuptial agreements typically cover the following key areas:
- Asset Division: Clearly defining how assets, both received before and during the marriage, will be divided in the event of a divorce or separation. This includes real estate, investments, and personal property.
- Debt Allocation: Outlining how existing debts and any new debts incurred during the marriage will be handled. This ensures that neither party is burdened with an unfair share of financial liabilities.
- Spousal Support (Alimony): Specifying the terms of spousal support, including the amount and duration, if any. This can provide financial security for both parties and mitigate potential disputes in the future.
- Business Interests: Addressing the treatment of businesses or professional practices owned by one or both parties. A well-crafted prenuptial agreement can help protect the continuity of a business in the event of a divorce.
- Inheritance and Estate Planning: Clarifying how inheritances, gifts, and other assets received by either spouse will be handled ensures that these assets are preserved for their intended beneficiaries.
- Child Custody and Support (if applicable): While prenuptial agreements cannot dictate child custody arrangements, they can address financial support for children from previous relationships or outline the financial responsibilities of each spouse towards their children.
