There are numerous benefits to having a prenuptial agreement in place, and one of these is the process of drafting the decree. As you discuss financial matters and responsibilities with your fiancé, this actually helps you outline your goals, and how to achieve them together. A prenuptial agreement can simplify a divorce if it ever occurs, but more importantly, it can get the ball rolling on vital matters leading up to a marriage.
If you would like to learn more about creating a prenuptial agreement and how this can help you, do not hesitate to request your case consultation with our New Canaan family law attorney today!
The modern reality is that prenuptial agreements are no longer just for fabulously wealthy couples with a staggering amount of assets. No matter your net worth, no matter your situation, there are ways a prenuptial agreement can help you and your family.
The worry that a prenuptial agreement undermines your marriage is another myth: They are not just about dividing property if you divorce. Prenuptial agreements can also cover what would happen if one of you were to pass away, and they can also detail financial responsibilities and goals for your marriage. Our New Canaan divorce attorney can help you draft an agreement that suits your family's needs.
If you are uncertain about drafting a prenuptial agreement, the reality is: You already have one! Connecticut family law dictates what gets defined as separate property or marital property, and how child custody as well as property ownership would be handled if you divorced or if either of you passed away.
You already have legal protections in place, and if they are not sufficient for your unique situation, you can create your own. The best part is that discussing financial matters and responsibilities for the marriage can strengthen your union too. If you can have these serious conversations about custody and finances now, you could be avoiding ruinous conflicts in the future.
We are available in the evening and on the weekend for you, so do not hesitate to set up your case review as soon as possible. Start learning about your legal rights and options when you call our New Canaan family law attorney at (203) 599-3600!
