The Benefits Of Establishing A Prenuptial Agreement
For business owners and other high net worth individuals, the prospect of marriage is often accompanied by the concern of losing assets acquired before the marriage in the event of a divorce. By establishing a prenuptial agreement, you can alleviate many of these concerns so that you can focus on the joy the occasion brings. The following are some of the key advantages of establishing a prenuptial agreement:
- It protects premarital assets.
- It allows the involved parties (not family court judges) to decide how wealth and assets will be divided in the event of a divorce.
- It assigns debt.
- It protects the inheritance rights of children and other family members outside of the marriage.
- It provides a framework for resolving potential disputes.
Of course, your legal agreements mean little if they are poorly-drafted and will not stand up to judicial scrutiny. With more than 27 years of experience, attorney Kathryn Lanigan Pruitt leads a team who knows how to properly draft and vet prenuptial agreements so that they truly capture the wishes of the firm’s clients.
