Benefits of Having a Pre-nuptial Agreement

While drafting a pre-nup with an attorney is not the most romantic thing to do before you get married, many couples can actually benefit from having a legal document that outlines all the financial expectations going into a marriage. Marriages often fail due to disagreements on finances, so why not enter your marital union feeling confident that your finances are protected?

Advantages of pre-nuptial agreements include:

  • Minimize disputes during a divorce
  • Protect you from your spouse’s debts
  • Protect your properties and assets

If you and your spouse does not have a contract such as a pre-nup and are not able to resolve your differences in a divorce, then decisions may be left up to the courts.
