What Does a Prenup Do?
A prenuptial agreement, commonly known as a prenup, is a legal contract that is signed by a couple before they get married or enter into a civil partnership. The main purpose of a prenuptial agreement is to establish the financial and property rights of each spouse in the event of a divorce, separation, or the death of one of the spouses. Here's what a prenup does:
- Asset Protection: A prenuptial agreement outlines how the couple's assets and debts will be divided in case of divorce or separation. It can protect individual property acquired before the marriage, as well as any inheritances or gifts received during the marriage.
- Alimony and Spousal Support: A prenup can address issues related to alimony or spousal support. It can determine whether one spouse will be entitled to financial support from the other in the event of a divorce.
- Debt Allocation: A prenuptial agreement can specify how debts acquired during the marriage will be allocated between the spouses in case of divorce or separation.
- Estate Planning: Prenups can also include provisions related to estate planning, such as how the couple's assets will be distributed upon the death of one spouse.
- Clarity and Protection: A prenup provides clarity and protects both spouses' interests, especially in situations where one or both partners have significant assets, businesses, or children from previous relationships.
- Avoiding Lengthy Legal Battles: By establishing the terms of a potential divorce or separation in advance, a prenup can help avoid lengthy and costly legal battles in the future.
It's important to note that a prenuptial agreement cannot address issues related to child custody or child support, as these matters are determined based on the best interests of the child at the time of divorce or separation.
To ensure that a prenuptial agreement is legally binding and enforceable, it is essential for both parties to speak with our experienced Frisco prenuptial agreement attorney and to disclose all relevant financial information honestly.
