What Does a Prenuptial Agreement Do?
Prenuptial agreements aren’t just for the rich and famous, they can be utilized by anyone about to marry. The essential goal of these agreements is to established clear expectations for couples who are about to enter into a legal union. The documents within these agreements can protect your property so that your spouse does not get it if you divorce, and it can also separate your business from the marital union, and it may also help protect other interests, like retirement accounts and certain investments.
A prenuptial agreement can establish the following:
- How to divvy up assets in the event of a divorce
- The rights and obligations of each spouse
- Major decisions about parenting (religion, healthcare, schooling, childcare, etc.)
- Child custody and child support arrangements in the event of a divorce
- Spousal support in the event of a divorce
These agreements must be completed before the marriage takes place, without exception. If you are already married and are interested in creating a similar type of binding document with your spouse, you might look into establishing a postnuptial agreement instead.
