Premarital and Prenuptial Agreements
Having a prenuptial agreement drafted by an experienced prenuptial agreement lawyer can save you countless hours and thousands of dollars down the road. McFarling Law Group routinely parties to a prenuptial agreement. Whether you need an attorney to draft a premarital agreement or to review one drafted by an attorney for your spouse to be, McFarling Law Group can help.
A prenuptial agreement is a written contract created before a marriage. It can state what each spouse’s financial rights and responsibilities are during the marriage. The prenuptial agreement may list all property each person owns and then can specify after the marriage what the spouse’s property rights will be. Because this is clearly stated, it can help the couple avoid any arguments in the future.
The prenuptial agreement can state how the parties will divide property and include how the parties’ separate property, retirement accounts and trusts are allocated for them. It can state how the parties’ will divide debts to protect spouses from specific financial situations. This can be a benefit to the couple and create a knowledgeable, healthy attitude for the marriage.
We recommend that a prenuptial agreement: 1) be fully executed by both parties at least 30 days before marriage; 2) be signed by an attorney representing the other party attesting that they explained the prenuptial agreement to their client and the client understood; and 3) contain a complete list of each party’s assets and debts.
