Thinking Ahead: Prenuptial Agreements

When many people think of premarital (prenuptial) agreements, they assume these arrangements are reserved for wealthy couples or those who stand to inherit significant property or a family business in the future. However, a premarital agreement is not just for the wealthy. No matter your financial situation, heading into a marriage having made arrangements for your property can save you from a potentially drawn-out and costly divorce in the future.

'Prenups' — Financial Management And Asset Protection

Our attorneys at Busciglio & Sheridan Law Group can assist you during the planning of your marriage to come up with an agreement that suits your needs and allows you to set aside concerns about the future. This often starts with an honest conversation with your future spouse regarding finances, future planning and numerous other factors that our lawyers can help you address.

Although each couple's situation is different, some of the most common reasons for a prenuptial agreement include:

  • Business owners looking to wed should take steps to protect the investments they make in their businesses as well as account for an increase in the business' value during the marriage.
  • For those bringing substantial debts to the marriage, the other party may wish to draft a premarital agreement to ensure he or she is protected from any premarital debt liabilities.
  • For those about to marry for a second time, there are plenty of things to consider such as the financial interests of children from a previous marriage. By creating a prenuptial agreement, individuals can opt to leave specific assets to their children as opposed to their spouse.

When you reach out to us at Busciglio & Sheridan Law Group, we will listen as you share the details of your situation. Once we have a clear idea of your goals, we can work together to draft a premarital agreement that protects you, your spouse and your children.
