Prenuptial Agreement Attorney in Carmel

See How a Prenup Can Protect Your Assets & Interests

A prenuptial agreement is a contract between two parties who plan to marry. The agreement sets forth how their assets and liabilities should be divided in the event of divorce. The prenuptial agreement will contain a formula that varies from the rebuttable presumption that a 50/50 division is just and reasonable. In essence, the prenuptial agreement allows the couple to control their divorce terms and prevent the court from being in charge of allocating their marital property.

It is in your best interest to draft your prenup with the assistance and guidance of a trusted attorney. Our Carmel prenuptial agreement attorney can help you prepare a comprehensive agreement that fully protects your rights and interests.

What to Include in a Prenuptial Agreement

In a legally binding prenuptial agreement, the couple will set forth how they will divide property and debts incurred before and during the marriage. In addition, the prenuptial agreement may also set forth conditions for spousal maintenance and additional distributions of property, depending upon the length of the marriage. Keep in mind that a prenuptial agreement cannot outline terms regarding child support or child custody.

What to Consider When Drafting a Prenuptial Agreement

Prenuptial agreements are not exclusively for celebrities or wealthy couples. They can benefit people from all walks of life.

A couple should consider a prenuptial agreement if:

  • The parties have a significant difference in income and assets
  • This is a second marriage
  • One party has a high debt load
  • One party is a business owner
  • One party’s estate planning focuses on inheritance to prior born children
  • One party is going to give up their career as a result of the marriage

Although most couples enter marriage with their eyes on forever, by executing a prenuptial agreement, the couple is provided certainty and clarity regarding what would happen in the event of a divorce. Prenuptial agreements should be signed well in advance of the wedding day. In addition, each party should hire their own attorney to ensure that they are making well-informed financial decisions before signing the prenuptial agreement.
