The last thing that most engaged couples want to think about is a prenuptial agreement. The unfortunate reality is that marriages sometimes end in divorce. A prenuptial agreement is an important tool for ensuring a fair division of assets in the case of divorce.
If you’re considering a prenuptial agreement, know that prenups are a logical choice for couples who are entering into marriage with substantial assets, debts and/or children. Essentially, a prenuptial agreement allows you and your soon-to-be spouse to “opt-out” of community property laws and spousal support. With a prenuptial agreement, you and your partner decide how those issues will be handled if the relationship ends.
