Prenuptial Agreements Can Have A Positive Impact

Prenuptial agreements, also called premarital agreements or antenuptial agreements, are valuable instruments which help people maximize certainty and stability in an unpredictable future.

Prenuptial agreements allow people to consider difficult questions now that might need to be answered at some future point when stress and chaos are bound to have some impact on decision-making. Further, not having to make those decisions at that future point may help to relieve pressure and help preserve the dignity and peace of mind of everyone involved.

I am attorney Beverly L. Brennan, founder of the Law Offices of Beverly L. Brennan, P.A., in Naples. I have been helping individuals and families deal with their family law difficulties for over 30 years. I understand the benefits that a well-crafted prenuptial agreement can bring to a relationship, and I can help you experience those benefits.

Do You Need A Prenuptial Agreement?

Prenuptial agreements are a sound idea and can benefit most people, but they are most commonly utilized in two circumstances:

  • To protect significant assets or a family business — You may want to ensure that certain property will remain yours alone after a potential divorce.
  • To guard children when entering a second marriage — People who have assets or children from a prior marriage may want to make specific provisions for them.

Prenuptial agreements can solve many problems and prevent others, and the request for a prenuptial agreement should not be seen as "planning to divorce" or lack of trust. Prenuptial agreements should be discussed long before the wedding date.
