Open communication builds strong marriages.

Prenuptial agreements are becoming more common and do not mean your marriage will end in divorce. Especially if one spouse has complicated estate, inheritance details, or children from a previous marriage, a prenup can generate helpful conversations around finances that may not have been discussed previously.

You may want to consider a prenup to:

  • Clarify property ownership
  • Protect family assets and estates
  • Ensure stability for children from previous marriages
  • Protect your spouse from debt
  • Establish clarity around finances

Family lawyer Rachael Griffith is experienced in drafting comprehensive prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.

How A Prenup Works

Prenuptial documents are essentially legal paperwork, but there is much they can and cannot include to be valid. If a prenup looks to be extremely unfair to one spouse, it’s likely that a judge will probably not uphold it. Also, if the circumstances under which the prenup was signed seem like one person may have been coerced, it is likely to be unenforceable.

When drafting a prenup, your lawyer will include details such as

  • Opting for mediation in case of divorce
  • Separation of property and who is responsible for the mortgage, utilities, and taxes
  • Debt responsibility
  • Alimony details in case of divorce
  • Children from previous marriages have access to assets and inheritance

To ensure that every detail is covered and your prenup is airtight, it’s essential that you hire an experienced family lawyer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I consider a prenup?

While everyone entering a marriage does not want to consider divorcing at some point, the reality is that the divorce rate hovers around 50%. Those with a valid prenup have a detailed outline of each partner’s rights to minimize conflict, legal costs, and emotional turmoil, especially for homes with children.

DOES A PRENUP MEAN I DON’T GET ALIMONY IN THE EVENT OF A DIVORCE?

No. A prenup can outline spousal support in divorce proceedings including a fixed amount, some alimony if needed, limited-time alimony, no alimony at all, and many other combinations.
