For couples planning to wed, the excitement and anticipation of the occasion can overshadow other important issues. Unfortunately, many marriages that begin with happiness and commitment eventually end in divorce. If couples have a prenuptial agreement in place, the divorce process can move along quickly and efficiently as the agreement will structure the separation of assets and property.
If your partner and you are preparing to tie the knot and have questions about protecting assets you are bringing into the marriage, the Law Office of Marla Zide, LLC, can help you with your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.
Benefits Of A Prenuptial Agreement
Although many couples may never consider a prenuptial agreement, those possessing significant assets should consider the benefits of determining property division and other aspects of separation in the event of divorce.
Some benefits of a prenuptial agreement include:
- Documentation of each spouse’s premarital assets
- Structuring an estate plan to keep the courts out of your property division affairs
- Documenting special arrangements between spouses
- Saving time by avoiding drawn-out court proceedings
- Assigning debt — credit cards, student loans, mortgages, etc.
- Saving money by reducing the amount of time you need to enlist an attorney
The circumstances of your marriage, your prenuptial agreement and your divorce may be unique to you and your spouse; that is why the attorneys of the Law Office of Marla Zide, LLC, believe in devoting personal care and attention to every case that comes through our doors.
