Prenups 101

What’s a prenuptial agreement or prenup? Do I need one? What if I have one and want to get out of it?

These are all great legal questions and our firm has answers to serve our clients’ prenup needs.

A prenuptial agreement is a contract a couple signs before they get married, that specifies which spouse gets which assets (from before and during the marriage) if the couple gets divorced in the future. Prenuptial agreements often are used where (1) one spouse has a lot of money or assets and the other doesn’t, (2) one spouse has children from a prior marriage, or (3) one spouse is involved in a family business, farm, vacation house, or other asset that needs to be kept separate from the marriage. Sometimes prenups get a bad reputation in society, but they can be a useful tool and helpful protection for individuals, families, and businesses.
