You Don’t Need To Be A Millionaire To Draft A Prenuptial Agreement
Regardless of your occupation or income, it’s wise to outline certain obligations, assets and other matters prior to your marriage. Ranging from assets acquired before or during the marriage to alimony or maintenance, everything is on the table should you and your spouse consent to stipulations laid out in the document. While anyone can choose to draft a prenuptial agreement, some people especially benefit from having a valid agreement in place, including:
- Those with significant premarital assets, such as business owners or those with large family estates
- Those with children from a prior relationship
- Those who are about to begin a second, third or other subsequent marriage
