Two people entering into a legal marriage can decide in advance what will happen if they divorce. The people involved, not a court, should decide what’s fair between them. Prenuptial agreements are appropriate when one party brings substantial assets, business interests, or potential inheritance into a marriage.
Before marriage, parties are free to define their individual legal rights and obligations. Smart people with money hire experienced counsel well before marriage to negotiate and draft agreements. The goal is to fashion an agreement that protects expectations and allows flexibility throughout marriage.
The lawyer is the only person who has read the inside of the top of the box.
