Do I need a prenuptial agreement?
Even if you do not presently have significant assets, a prenuptial or premarital agreement is an important way for parties to articulate their rights and obligations in the event of divorce. While no one wants to think about divorce before marriage, taking precautions to protect your rights is a good idea. A prenuptial agreement can be especially helpful for:
- Parties with children from a former marriage
- Individuals who have significant premarital assets
- Individuals who expect to inherit significant wealth
