Benefits of Prenuptial Agreements
Before you get married, it is wise to discuss with your future spouse each of your personal financial situations. Having this discussion will only benefit your marriage. Are you compatible financially? Will you be able to separate your debts? Here are some benefits gained through a prenuptial agreement:
If you are marrying someone with a great amount of debt, a prenuptial agreement can protect the debt-free spouse from having to pay the many financial debts of the other spouse.
It will protect the financial interests of older individuals, couples entering their second or third marriages as well as affluent people.
It will protect the inheritance rights of beneficiaries such as children and grandchildren from previous marriages.
It will limit the amount of spousal support if the married couple decides to pursue a divorce.
Prenuptial agreements can provide clarity to the financial matters of marrying couples. I know that every client is unique. My firm is knowledgeable, attentive and good at problem-solving.
