Why Do You Need a Prenuptial Agreement?
We don't merely draft these documents in case the marriage ends. Prenuptial Agreements also outline the financial expectations for the marriage itself. Walking you through these steps allows us to help you and your future spouse understand how you manage your money - which sometimes is not a common topic of conversation for almost-newlyweds.
You may wish to discuss your philosophies behind credit card use, expectations for your personally owned business, decisions regarding joint or separate bank accounts, and other money-based decisions.
Some agreements also outline terms for when spouses bring separately owned property into the marriage. You may wish to establish a plan for when this separate property will become joint property.
Other items you may include in your prenuptial agreement include:
- Retirement plans
- Inheritance and family heirlooms
- Instructions for stepchildren
- Plans for either spouse's debt
Can You Put Anything in Your Agreement?
The court will dismiss any illegal terms you include in your arrangement. As your New York Family Law attorneys, we can comb through your draft to make sure it meets all the state criteria for legally binding arrangements. Certain non-financial items, such as Child Custody arrangements or household responsibilities, cannot be included in your agreement.
