Prenuptial Agreements: An Overlooked Detail When Planning Marriage
You are ready to get married. It may be your first time or fourth time or somewhere in-between. Along with love and passion, there are a number of other things to ponder, though. Your union is also a merger of households, finances, debts and property. Before you say, “I do,” this may be the right time to learn about prenuptial agreements.
My law firm, Cynthia M. Pyfrom, P.A., in Boynton Beach, Florida, has a firm understanding of family law and related matters such as prenuptial agreements. A “prenup” is really a safeguard that will protect your assets, business and every other financial aspect in your life that you have built up before your marriage. With a prenuptial agreement, you can make sure that nonmarital property stays yours.
Protecting Your Nonmarital Assets
Sensitive and understanding, I have worked in the legal field for more than 20 years, initially serving as a paralegal until I became an attorney in 2013. I have represented many couples who are engaged and have been in long-term relationships and are ready to get married.
Many of my clients have already gone through a divorce and may have had an eye-opening experience that harshly struck their pocketbooks and investments. A prenuptial agreement can protect:
- The small business that you started before your pending marriage
- An inheritance that you received before your union
- All assets and investments such as money market funds, pensions, stocks and bonds, and retirement accounts that you accumulated before the marriage
- You from having to pay any outstanding debts owed by your future spouse
You want to maintain a happy life and a happy marriage. You do not want to face any more financial battles if the two of you split and must divide your assets. A prenuptial agreement has no attached stigma but is simply a common tool to protect your financial future.
