Protecting your assets before entering marriage is not only a smart thing to do, it is also a decision that could effect the rest of your life should the worst case scenario happen.
No one enters into marriage with the thoughts of “what if”, but even the best intentions do not go as we planned. And with a strong Pre-nuptial agreement at least will know that your assets are going to be protected.
When you are planning on getting married an important part of this planning may be the drafting of a prenuptial agreement. A prenuptial agreement can be particularly important when parties are married later in life or have accumulated substantial assets prior to the marriage.
A prenuptial agreement can also be very important if there are children from a prior relationship. A properly drafted prenuptial agreement can protect your children and heirs. Too often surviving children of a prior relationship are disinherited in favor of a surviving spouse because of the lack of a prenuptial agreement.
For a prenuptial agreement to be upheld by the court there must be a full disclosure of the assets of the parties. If there is not a full disclosure the courts will most likely not uphold the agreement. The prenuptial agreement must also not be unconscionable when entered into.
A postnuptial agreement is important if there has been a breakdown of the marriage and the parties are contemplating a divorce or separation. A properly drafted post nuptial agreement must be fair and equitable to the parties and supported by adequate consideration.
No one entered into marriage with the idea of getting divorces, but even the best intentions do not always go as we plan. With a strong prenuptial agreement you will know that your assets are going to be protected.
