The Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement

If you have children from a previous marriage or if you have substantial personal net worth and are planning to get married, you may want to consider using a prenuptial agreement to protect yourself in the event of divorce. A well-crafted agreement can eliminate any concerns about money and put the focus on the relationship.

My goal with every client is to help you have a clear and comprehensive understanding of your legal rights, as well as your options, so that you can make informed decisions that are in your best interests. I will always give you an honest assessment of your likelihood of meeting your goals. To set up an appointment, contact my office, or call me at 907-272-2203.

Why You Should Consider a Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement can provide many benefits. If you are bringing significant assets into the marriage, you do not have to worry about losing much of what you worked so hard to build. Because you specifically identify the distribution of property in the event of divorce, fear and doubt can be avoided.

In addition, if you have children from a previous marriage, they may have concerns about your estate or their inheritance in the event of divorce. A prenuptial agreement can often help minimize or avoid family-wide disputes in second or subsequent marriages.

The planning that you engage in during the preparation of a prenuptial agreement can also be helpful for you own estate planning, as well as your personal financial planning. It will also prevent lengthy and expensive litigation in the event of separation or divorce. The courts in Alaska are enforcing prenuptial agreements to a far greater extent than they were in the past.

What I Will Do for You

When you hire me to prepare a premarital agreement, I will gather information from you regarding all current assets, as well as any profits anticipated from those assets. My goal will be to preserve all premarital property, and to clearly define what your spouse will receive as marital property in the event of death or divorce. I will also draft or review the prenuptial agreement and advise you regarding any proposed changes or amendments to the agreement.
