Do I need a prenuptial agreement if I am getting married?
The reason that we would advise to look into a prenuptial agreement, or maybe talk to an attorney to see if that is something that you want to enter into, or have your fiancé maybe enter into with you, of course, at that point is to protect yourself. Protection is something that we always advise parties to think about at the time or before getting married.
A prenuptial agreement will protect your assets. You can determine at that point if alimony is something that either one of you is going to be entitled to, how the assets are going to split, what is marital, what is non-marital, and so on. You can even agree on attorney fees if maybe, let’s say, your spouse is going to contest that the prenuptial agreement at that point during a divorce. You can agree before getting married that if he contests it, then he will be the person, or she will be the person, paying those attorney fees.
