Prenuptial agreements (or Prenups) are contracts signed before marriage stating the terms of the marriage and the expectations of the parties contemplating marriage.
While the expectation of divorce is a common reason to get a prenup, one of the most valuable uses of a prenup is as an estate planning tool. Prenuptial agreements are one of the most effective ways to ensure that your children receive everything that you want to leave to them if something happens to you. They can also help you with your asset protection and wealth allocation strategies during your marriage.
If you are contemplating marriage and you already have children or assets, please look into the value that a prenuptial agreement can add to your estate plan.
