Prenuptial Agreements

Although many people believe that prenuptial agreements are for the wealthy and famous, many couples of varying financial means use them. Typically, prenuptial agreements address the disposition assets and debt upon a separation, divorce, illness, or death. Making the decision to enter into a prenuptial agreement is something that a couple should take the time to consider and agree upon before it is written and signed.

It is important to meet with a lawyer to create your prenuptial agreement, to ensure that what is written is both fair and follows legal standards such as:
