Why Prenuptial Agreements Are More Common
In decades past, only the very wealthy tended to get prenuptial agreements. Things have changed. Today, people entering a marriage want to understand what is being brought into the union. Both people want to know what will happen should the marriage last less than a lifetime.
With decades of family law experience, attorney Martin Sir and his team understand how a prenuptial agreement can be a major step forward for a couple that is looking for honesty and open communication in a marriage. At The Law Office of Martin Sir & Associates, we can help.
While it’s true that most people do not enter a marriage believing the marriage will dissolve, the truth is that many marriages, up to 50% of them, end in divorce. What a prenuptial agreement (prenup) does is help to ensure that the divorce goes smoothly. With a prenup, both people know “who gets what” in a divorce. A prenup (or a postnup, created after the marriage) offers several protective benefits.
- Allows both people to be able to identify and protect what is important to them
- Can provide protections for children
- Can clarify what is marital property
- Can provide business ownership protection
- Can ensure that assets are distributed fairly in the event of a divorce
- Can delineate debt
- Can set the foundation for the future, including a lifelong union or a “smart divorce”
