Creating A Prenuptial Agreement That Works

Is A Prenuptial Agreement Right For Me?
There is no easy answer to that question. For young couples who do not have a great deal of assets, a prenuptial agreement may not be necessary. If you are already independently wealthy and getting married again or for the first time, it may make more sense to have a lawyer assist you in negotiating one. A prenuptial agreement can protect any:
- Real estate properties acquired before the marriage
- Investments and business ownership stakes
- Trust funds or future inheritances
- Luxury items that have a monetary value
It can also address how you will share expenses during the marriage, what purchases you consider marital property, and what you do not. It can provide for children, alimony and estate planning.
If you already have children, a prenuptial agreement can ensure that they will receive assets you want them to receive. Margaret Oliver can assist you in drafting a prenuptial agreement that will stand the test of time. She will use her skills and knowledge to protect your assets while considering any future implications the agreement will have.
