I already have a house and property and I want to protect it. Will a Prenuptial Agreement help?
Yes. If you own property before the marriage and you want to protect that property in the event of divorce, a well drafted and enforceable Prenuptial Agreement can make it easier for you to keep that property in the event of a divorce.
Do I need my own lawyer if my fiancé's attorney prepared a Prenuptial Agreement?
A Prenuptial Agreement is a contract detailing how couples will resolve issues should the marriage end in divorce. They sometimes contain provisions for property distribution upon death, but those provisions are better placed in a Last Will and Testament. Prenuptial Agreements are especially important for those coming into a marriage with children or property and allow each spouse to plan for his or her future by protecting assets and possibly avoid expensive litigation later.
