The creation of a prenuptial agreement can provide an opportunity for a couple contemplating marriage to discuss financial issues and make a plan for how to use their assets and resources during a marriage to avoid the kind of financial difficulties or disagreements that, in fact, sometimes can lead to divorce. The main purpose of a prenuptial agreement (also known as a premarital agreement or simply a prenup) is to protect and/or preserve certain assets as the separate, non-marital property of either one or both of them, individually. We help our clients anticipate the issues that are likely to create difficulties and help them discuss those issues and develop a plan to avert them as part of the prenuptial agreements.
