When you are preparing to marry the person you love, it can be very uncomfortable to consider the possibility that your marriage may eventually end in divorce. There is no telling, however, what may happen in the years to come, and developing a prenuptial agreement is designed as an insurance policy detailing what will happen to your current and future assets upon divorce.
There are specific situations in which couples commonly agree that a prenuptial agreement is for the best. You may want to give serious consideration to a prenuptial agreement if you and your future spouse are in one of the following situations:
- There is a significant difference between each spouse’s income and amount of assets.
- One or both partners are business owners, have a business practice, or are executives.
- One or both of the spouses have children from a prior marriage that they must care for.
Since 1997, Goldstein Law Group have assisted clients in New Jersey to develop prenuptial agreements that satisfy both parties. We help ensure that the agreement meets legal guidelines and that there are no hidden assets. If you and your significant other are considering a prenuptial, you can learn all the benefits and disadvantages by contacting the divorce attorneys at Goldstein Law Group today.Why should I consider a prenuptial agreement?
- There is no telling what can happen during the course of your lifetime.
- Gain peace of mind about an unforeseen future.
- Protect what will happen to your current and future assets in the event of a divorce.
- Ensure that all of your children’s needs continue being met.
- Tax and estate planning considerations
There are unfortunate cases where a spouse fights a well-prepared prenuptial agreement meeting all legal requirements in an attempt to obtain additional assets. A spouse cannot propose voiding a prenuptial agreement on the sole basis that they now want additional assets; there must be a legal reason the agreement should not hold up in court.
In some cases, there is a very clear reason why the prenuptial agreement cannot be sustained (such as written formalities were not completed) , but in other cases the reason may be complex (such as that the agreement is unconscionable or assets were hidden), so it is important to find an experienced NJ divorce lawyer to analyze your agreement. There may even be some cases where a proper modification benefits both spouses.
