Most people go into marriage with the idea that they will remain married for the rest of their life. However, these same people often realize that divorce could pop up when they least expect it.
There are many reasons for divorce, all of which you should become familiar with. Along with this, there are things you can do to protect yourself and your finances in the event of a divorce. For example, creating a prenuptial agreement is one of the best decisions you can make.
Through the use of a prenuptial agreement, a couple can determine the best way to divide assets and debts in the event of a divorce. This can include but is not limited to assets and liabilities associated with bank accounts, retirement plans, credit cards, real estate, stocks and business interests.
Many people shy away from the creation of a prenuptial agreement for two reasons:
— They don’t want to discuss this with their soon-to-be spouse.
— They are unsure of what to include in the prenuptial agreement.
At our law firm, we’ve helped many couples navigate the often murky water associated with the creation of a prenuptial agreement. With our experience, we’re able to help you create an agreement that suits the wants and needs of both individuals.
Just because you create a prenuptial agreement does not mean that you will be faced with divorce in the future. Instead, this is something that you do for protection and peace of mind. As you know, there is nothing more important than that.
