Pre-Marital Agreements and Marital Agreements 

 

Most people are familiar with the concept of a pre-marital agreement (Pre-Nup).  It is where you and your soon-to-be spouse sign agreements about what will happen if you get divorced in the future.  It may sound harsh, but it is usually a very good idea if either of you have any assets coming into the marriage.  You can also get a marital agreement after you’re already married that does the same thing.  

Advantages: 

  • You know what will happen if you separate or get divorced.  
  • Protect assets that you already have going into the marriage so that you get the full benefit.  
  • Protect your assets for your children if it will be a blended family.  
  • Reduce stress and anxiety about what will happen if something goes wrong.  

Disadvantages 

  • Awkward to talk about with your spouse.  
  • You cannot make agreements about parenting plans or child support.  
  • Can be difficult to get your spouse to agree.  

If you have questions about a pre-nup or a marital agreement, please call our office at 303.431.0415 for a free 15 minute initial phone consultation.
