Prenuptial agreementA prenuptial agreement can be a beneficial tool for your marriage. Unfortunately, many people probably perceive prenuptial agreements as planning for a marriage to fail.

Benefits of Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a written contract between you and your spouse that outlines your respective rights and obligations upon the dissolution of your marriage regarding the wealth, property, debt, and liabilities you accumulate during marriage. The parties typically agree on what kind of property they want included in the marital estate. You can also agree on how debts are apportioned upon your marriage’s conclusion. Importantly, prenuptial agreements can also help clarify matters when one of the parties has support obligations from a previous marriage. But by agreeing in advanced about how these issues will unfold upon divorce can save you thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees in the event the unthinkable occurs.

Prenuptial agreements are particularly helpful in the following situations:

  • You or your spouse owns a business
  • There is a substantial difference in earnings between you and your spouse
  • One spouse has significantly more debt than the other
  • Either of you were previously married
  • You or your spouse have children from a previous marriage

In addition to drawing distinct terms and conditions regarding the character of certain property, a prenuptial agreement can help determine the parties’ responsibilities regarding spousal and child support upon divorce. Although a child’s natural parents have a legal duty to support them, step-parents are not legally obligated to provide financial support for stepchildren upon divorcing their natural parent. However, a valid prenuptial agreement could provide a contractual obligation for a parent to pay child support for a stepchild upon divorce.
