Caring, Practical Advice About Prenuptial Agreements

There is a lot of preparation that goes into a wedding and marriage. Throughout the course of preparing yourself, it may be in your best interests to consider if a prenuptial agreement (or prenup, as it is sometimes called) may be right for you. This type of premarital contract can protect your individual assets in the event that the marriage does not work out.

At the law office of Huckabee, Weiler & Levengood, P.C., we try to help our clients focus on the positives of structuring a prenuptial agreement instead of the negatives. We do not see a prenup as a pessimistic step; that by creating a prenuptial agreement, you are saying that the marriage will fail before it has even begun.

This is the stereotypical view of prenuptial agreements, and we work hard to see that our clients understand the benefits. Contact a lawyer at our office today to set up a consultation about some of those benefits, including:

  • Prenuptial agreements can provide thorough protection for issues such as property division and spousal support in the event of a future divorce.
  • However, prenuptial agreements cannot provide the specifics of future child custody arrangements or child support payments.
  • Prenuptial agreements can provide protection for children from previous relationships or marriages.
  • It is also possible to draft an agreement after the marriage, called a postnuptial agreement.

We Work With You

An appropriately drafted prenuptial agreement, or postnuptial agreement, can protect and preserve your assets and property, as well as the property and assets of your spouse-to-be. Prenups can help in the event that an unforeseen event may occur in your marriage.
