THE DIVORCE RATE FOR FIRST-TIME MARRIAGES APPROACHES 50%, ACCORDING TO MANY SURVEYS.
The number is even higher for second and third marriages. A prenuptial agreement (prenup) is a legal document that determines property rights should a marriage fail. There are many people who lambaste prenuptial agreements as being predictive of a doomed marriage. However, we are unaware of any spouse that has ever walked into our office seeking a divorce and who also planned on getting a divorce on their wedding day. As unromantic as it might seem at first, a prenup can be assurance to both spouses, that if for any sad reason hearts and minds change, there is already an exit strategy that will prevent WWIII. If you want a prenup drafted, or if you want advice concerning a prenup that was given to you, we are here to assist you.
