Determining If You Should Enter a Prenuptial Arrangement
Every prenuptial situation is extremely dependent upon the individual couple’s personal preferences and aims. Sometimes it can be difficult to decide since this practical legal process is still entangled with both partners’ emotions.
If you are unsure of whether a prenup is right for you, our knowledgeable lawyer can answer all your questions.
Some of the circumstances where it is highly recommendable to seek a prenuptial agreement include situations where:
- One of the partners has accumulated many more financial assets.
- Either party has been in a previous marriage.
- Either party has children from a prior marriage or relationship.
- Either party has accrued several debts.
- Either party has their own business, company, organization, or non-profit group.
- Either party is set to inherit a large amount of property or wealth.
- Either party has decided to be a homemaker or a stay-at-home parent for an extended period of time and is thus required to leave the workforce.
Arranging a Postnuptial Agreement
While it is most common for individuals to get a prenuptial arrangement before they get married, there are other instances when the couple who has already been married may desire to obtain a post-nuptial agreement after the wedding. For instance, in the case of an elopement or a shorter engagement period, when there was little time to wait for a prenuptial negotiation, couples may choose a postnup.
Alternatively, you or your spouse may have just started a new company or greatly expanded your business, and you are seeking to reserve the financial matters under a separate designation from the marriage estate. Whatever the scenario is, our knowledgeable attorney can advise you.
Handling Prenuptial & Postnuptial Complications
Prenups and postnups can be very helpful when it comes to dealing with debts, assets, and property, as well as plans for employee benefits, retirement, pensions, real estate, stocks, and even family heirlooms. However, sometimes complications can arise, particularly if either party has children from another marriage.
Our skillful prenuptial/postnuptial agreement attorney in Birmingham can advise you on which aspects are typically more enforceable than others.
