In part one of our blog series discussing prenuptial agreements, we cleared up some of the most common misconceptions regarding this premarital document. While marriages are a joyous and everlasting union, it’s important to have all of this information handy. It can potentially help you and your future spouse from being left in emotional and financial disrepair if a divorce was to occur.
Now, the divorce lawyers of Barrera Sanchez & Associates, P.C. will share additional information that will help you and your future spouse decide which path to marriage you’ll take.
It may be difficult to bring up the prenup topic, but doing so can prevent unnecessary pain. Let our divorce attorneys talk you through the process today.
Not Exclusive to the Old
One of the most common misconceptions regarding prenups is the idea that they’re exclusive to older generations. However, this is far from true. Younger generations who are looking to tie the knot are generally well-educated college graduates who are starting careers that will support their families for a lifetime.
This generation’s success will inevitably develop and blossom along with their marriage. Eventually, a married individual may create a business, spend money on a house and even start a collection of expensive cars, so doesn’t it make sense to protect these assets in case the marriage fails?
A prenup will additionally protect you if you inherit a large sum of money by ensuring that only the person who is named in the testament will walk away from a marriage with the inheritance. If you feel as if you have no assets to protect prior to your wedding, keep in mind that you can protect future wealth with a postnuptial agreement. This document holds the same legal weight as a prenup, the only difference being that it’s drafted after the wedding.
