Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement

Prenuptial agreements are a way for a couple getting married to create plans if anything was to go wrong in the marriage. Some see this as a negative act that is doubting the marriage, but in actuality it can help in many ways. The key benefits to creating a prenup include:

  • Protecting each spouse's separate property
  • Creating an estate plan
  • Defining what property and assets are communal
  • Eliminating conflicts and saving money if a divorce was to take place
  • Create procedures and rules for the future of the marriage
  • Establishing religious and education goals for children

Prenuptial agreements allow couples to eliminate uncertainty if one spouse was to pass away or if they were to get divorced at any point. In both of these cases, the spouses can avoid the costly court proceedings that follow a divorce or death of a spouse. This also protects each party from debts that their spouse has. To discuss the possibility of a prenuptial agreement, call The Law Offices of Marc E. Mitzner and speak with an Orange County family law lawyer.

Prenups are not just for people who have a lot of money, they can help any couple. Handle the issues of property division, alimony, debt division, child custody, child support and visitation right from the start. It can be much easier to come to agreements regarding these issues while still in an amicable relationship rather than in a bitter and angry environment when divorcing. You can avoid the hassle and cost of court and the conflict that can follow by laying out the terms before even getting married. Most couples make a prenup to allow peace of mind that they have arrangements if anything happened between them.
