Is a Premarital Agreement right for you? Premarital Agreements serve many different purposes and can be as broad and comprehensive as needed. Sometimes a person wants to protect a business or assets accumulated before the marriage. A Premarital Agreement allows a person to decide how assets and debts will be divided upon separation, or help address spousal support and inheritance rights. If a couple would prefer to set forth how assets and debts will be addressed between the two parties, rather than how the law addresses them, they can do that with a Premarital Agreement. If you are interested in a Premarital Agreement, it is best to talk to an attorney as soon as you know that you intend to get married. Waiting until the last minute can cause unnecessary stress on both parties and result in rushed negotiations.
