Prenuptial Agreement

Prenuptial Agreement

Prenuptial Agreement In Edwardsville

While entering into a legal contract with your significant other before marriage may not seem like the most romantic idea, it is often times a smart decision for couples to make. Emotions aside, prenuptial agreements make very good sense for some. The major benefit of prenuptial agreements (also known as antenuptial agreements or “prenups”) is that they allow marrying couples to protect their separate property, and debts, during a marriage. A well-written prenuptial agreement contains detailed descriptions of the significant property and debts of each party.

You should consider entering into a prenuptial agreement with your significant other if either of you:

  • Already own a home or other real estate
  • Own stock or have a retirement account 401 (k)
  • Have children from a previous relationship
  • Will be supporting the other spouse while the other spouse goes to college or graduate school
