Benefits of a prenuptial agreement

If you are getting married in Connecticut, you may have been considering a prenuptial agreement. While there are many opponents of this type of agreement, there are just as many proponents. At The Prince Law Group, LLC, we have seen many couples benefit from having a prenuptial agreement when their marriages end. It can be beneficial to you to consider what such an agreement can offer you.

The first thing to be aware of is that this is a legal document. It holds power and will be observed by the court. According to the Wall Street Journal, you also should be aware that a prenuptial agreement is not just beneficial during a divorce. It also is helpful if you or your spouse dies. Because all marriages with end in death or divorce, having an agreement can give you a peace of mind regardless of how your marriage ends.

This legal document also helps to protect any assets you had before the marriage that you would like to keep separate from the marital property. It is also a good idea to have one if you have a large amount of assets or a high net worth. After your death or in a divorce, the legal fight over your assets can be incredibly expensive. Because of this, having an agreement in place that outlines the exact terms of asset distribution can be very helpful in ensuring a divorce goes more smoothly or your estate is easier to handle.

If you have children from a previous marriage, it is especially important to have a prenup. This will help ensure their inheritance is protected. It also can protect your assets if your spouse has been ordered to pay child support or alimony for a past marriage. Not all situations require an agreement, though. If you are getting married for the first time and have no valuable assets, then you likely do not need one. Everyone else, though, usually benefits from having one.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
