Prenups Aren’t Just for Divorcing Couples
As the years pass, the stigma attached to prenuptial agreements continues to evaporate. A greater number of couples are choosing to sign these agreements prior to tying the knot. A prenup is an effective way to be ready for whatever the future may bring, even if the couple remains married until death does indeed do them part.
Speaking of death, a prenup can make it much easier to divide property should a spouse pass away. For example, there may be a certain heirloom that the spouse wishes it to be kept in possession of their birth family when they pass away.
A spouse can also set aside a certain amount of inheritance if perhaps they have children from a previous relationship by having a prenup. In regards to the estate, the agreement can also be used to ensure that an ex-husband or wife cannot claim rights to something such as a business.
While it may not be the easiest topic to bring up with your spouse, a prenuptial agreement may end up saving both of you a world of headaches in regards to your finances. Always make sure you have the right legal assistance in developing your prenup so that there is absolutely no confusion or concerns.
