Protecting Your Interests With A Prenuptial Agreement
Prenuptial agreements have received a bad rap over the years. They are not about distrust or money; they are not a win-lose proposition. In fact, laying the groundwork for a prenuptial agreement can be a great relationship building process if handled properly by an experienced family law attorney.
The perspective we take at Thompson Family Law, P.A., in Fort Myers, Florida, is that the process of putting together a prenuptial agreement is like going through premarital counseling. We explore everything that can happen during a marriage, both good and bad, so that you will be legally protected before walking down the aisle.
What Will Happen If…
In putting together a prenuptial agreement, we will explore the two issues most couples don’t ever talk about before they get married: death and divorce. Much like having insurance to protect your car or your home, a prenuptial agreement can be thought of as a disaster plan to make sure you are protected if the unexpected happens during your marriage.
What If Your Circumstances Change?
Prenuptial agreements can be amended at anytime to better fit the circumstances of your marriage. For instance, a young couple just starting out will obviously have different needs and perspectives than an older couple with children from an existing marriage and multiple bank accounts. As your life changes, you prenuptial agreement can change to match it.
