No matter how in love and optimistic one feels going into a marriage, there always remains the possibility of divorce or death. No one wants these sad events to occur. But in the event that they do, having a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement helps you maintain a voice in division of assets and other arrangements the state otherwise controls. These agreements also provide peace of mind, clarity, transparency and a sense of control at a time in marriage when making decisions proves easier and peaceful.
Although celebrities and the wealthy paved the way for popularity of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, anyone can have one. You do not need to have many assets or substantial income. Instead, these agreements help you protect what you have going into a marriage, just as they protect what you build throughout your time as a couple.
A prenup protects your children’s financial future, estates or inheritances. It also protects your business, intellectual property, inheritance, retirement plan, trusts and holdings from before or after matrimony. You can ensure a spouse’s debt does not affect your financial standing after marriage, too. Attorney Nicole Alvarez helps you understand what a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can do for you and represents you throughout the process.
