Do You Need A Prenuptial Or Postnuptial Agreement?
Preserving your wealth in the event of a divorce should be one of your primary considerations. If you have not come up with an agreement beforehand, you could find yourself in a long and expensive battle to fight for what you are entitled to.
One way to avoid much of this drama in a divorce is to work with a family law attorney from Wampler & Souder, LLC, to create a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. These arrangements specify what would happen in the event of a divorce in terms of your property, asset division and other aspects.
Planning Ahead Is The Wise Choice
Setting up these agreements is done ahead of time — either before the marriage (prenuptial) or after (postnuptial). They have the same purpose, to spell out what will happen in the event of a divorce. This can greatly reduce the complexity of a divorce, because the terms have essentially already been decided.
Having an agreement in the event of a divorce does not mean you expect your marriage to end; rather it is a way to put your mind at ease in case a divorce does happen down the road. It is there for the protection of both parties so that if a divorce does come to pass, any disputes over the terms will be minimal.
