Experienced Stamford Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys
Connecticut is not an equitable distribution state. All assets may be included in a fair division of marital property in a divorce settlement. Prenuptial agreements have become a legal necessity for couples bringing any significant personal assets into their marriage. When properly drafted, a prenuptial agreement can be used to make sure that generational wealth, professional practices and business partnership are not classified as marital property.
Why a Prenuptial Agreement for People Entering Marriage
People entering marriage consider financial planning an essential part of their marriage. A prenuptial agreement should be considered an important part of any long-term financial plan. A prenuptial agreement gives you tools to invest personal assets to meet your individual financial goals or commingle assets as a couple. Professionals getting married are particularly advised to protect their inheritances and businesses, and their earnings and investments with a solid prenuptial agreement.
The Benefits of A Prenup
There are many reasons why a couple might want to work together before signing a life-long agreement. Some of the reasons include:
- To clearly define what will be separate property and what will be communal
- To establish an estate plan
- To create a plan should the marriage not last a lifetime
- To reduce future conflict
Many people react to the idea of prenuptial agreements as if they are a predictor of divorce. Nobody goes into marriage intending it to end in divorce. The reality is that prenuptial agreements give both parties the confidence to invest emotionally and financially in their marriage, knowing that their personal assets and financial future have been protected, in the event of a dissolution.
