The Legal Utility of Prenups and Postnups

When you consider that approximately 50 percent of marriages will end in divorce, the discussion around prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements can be framed from a very different viewpoint than one might expect. For many years the discussions around pre and post nups were considered socially taboo topics. As a result, many people who were preparing for their big day simply ignored, disregarded or glossed over the prospect of signing a prenuptial agreement.

Many people have come to regret that decision in later years. Ultimately, the reputation of prenuptial agreements has changed. Prenuptial agreements can be influential documents granting important insurance for those who are getting married that if they do get divorced one day, there will be rules, provisions and measures in place to ensure the allocation of marital and non-marital resources and less acrimony during the process.

Prenuptial agreements are not just for the wealthy. The more complicated your estate, whether through wealth, businesses, inheritance, or children from a prior marriage, the more important it becomes to establish legally safeguards and planning.. Al
