When to consider a premarital agreement
A prenuptial agreement is a preventative measure that seeks to reduce litigation and protect your assets if separation, divorce and death event provisions can be contained in a premarital agreement. Premarital agreements are a planning opportunity. Additionally, a premarital agreement can be beneficial to you and your spouse because it can outline the obligations that each of you have in your marriage. If you have questions or concerns about creating a premarital agreement, you should contact our experienced Cherry Hill divorce attorneys as far in advance of a wedding date as possible. Do not wait until invitations have already been sent.
It is in your best interest to consider a prenuptial agreement when you:
- Have more assets than your spouse
- Are about to receive an inheritance or monetary gift
- Have a spouse with significant debt.
- Were previously married
- Have children from another relationship
- Own a family business
- Are a partner in a business
- Are the beneficiary of a trust
A premarital agreement becomes effective upon marriage. Additionally, a premarital agreement attorney in Cherry Hill can explain to you that while a prenuptial agreement can explain the modification or elimination of spousal support in the event of a divorce, it cannot adversely affect the right of a child to support. In the event that you wish to revoke or modify an existing agreement after marriage, the altered document must be re-signed by both parties.
