The Murfreesboro family attorneys at Parkerson Santel, PLLC believe being proactive is always a good idea. While getting married is surely a joyous and exciting time in a person's life, there are other matters that require some serious consideration. If you are getting married, you should think about filing a prenuptial agreement in the event your marriage ends in divorce. Many choose not to take this precautionary step because they fear it may be in bad taste, when in fact, it is smart and realistic.
Having a prenuptial agreement drawn up can provide you with the following benefits:
Free consultations are available for all the firm's prospective clients. The firm can address any of your concerns about prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
If you have already tied the knot, you can still obtain a certain amount of protection under a postnuptial agreement. Once married, a couple has a fiduciary duty to care for one another. However, a postnuptial agreement is better than having no agreement at all. A postnuptial agreement can also help you decide how your assets will be divided in the event of divorce. Discussing your situation with a well-versed lawyer at the firm can help you understand what you can expect from the agreement you choose to establish.
If you would like to discuss your legal needs before deciding to move forward with a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, the firm would be happy to answer any questions you may have. They can help you weigh your various options and become better informed.
