Plan For The Future With A Premarital Agreement
Premarital agreements, also known as a prenuptial agreement, are not uncommon in situations where one of the spouses has been married before or has disproportionately more property or earnings than the other spouse. These agreements can eliminate much of the uncertainty and stress surrounding dissolution of a marriage and allow the parties to enter into marriage with greater peace of mind.
It is important that a premarital agreement be drafted properly to realize the parties’ wishes and avoid challenges later on. If you need assistance drafting a premarital agreement or challenging one that was not drafted properly, contact an attorney at Rombro & Manley LLP for a consultation.
Advantages Of Premarital Agreements
A premarital agreement allows parties who are contemplating marriage to set out in advance how their property will be divided in the event of a divorce, separation or death. Premarital agreements can also state whether spousal support will be paid on divorce and can dictate terms related to the making of a will or trust, or ownership rights and disposition of death benefits from life insurance policies.
Items that may be subject to a premarital agreement are extremely broad and include any matter not in violation of law or public policy, except that the right to receive child support may not be adversely affected.
