Prenuptial agreements provide many important benefits

Prenuptial agreements have a variety of useful benefits and are not just for individuals considering marriage who have a significant number of assets. Premarital agreements are for anyone getting married to consider and have many important uses.

There are commonly misunderstandings associated with prenuptial agreements but they can help clarify concerns couples may have when entering marriage. Without a prenuptial agreement, state laws will determine how property is divided if the couple divorces. Additionally, there are rules associated with prenuptial agreements to ensure they are valid that couples considering marriage should be familiar with. Because the rules associated with prenuptial agreements can vary by state, it is important for couples to be familiar with requirements in their state to ensure their prenuptial agreement is valid.

Prenuptial agreements can identify if assets and property one spouse entered the marriage with; clarify how assets and finances should be divided in the event of a divorce; clarify liability for debts; clarify finances that will remain as separate property and not subject to division in the event of a divorce; how retirement and pensions will be handled in the event of a divorce; provide estate protections; and provide financial protections for children from prior relationships.

Prenuptial agreements can be useful in many ways to couples entering a marriage which is why they are helpful for couples to understand and to be familiar with. They can also provide important protections, all of which couples should understand and know how a prenuptial agreement can help in their specific circumstances.
