Knowledgeable Guidance Concerning Entering Into A Prenuptial Agreement

I advise clients who want prenuptial and postnuptial agreements prepared and those who have been requested to sign such agreements. Each spouse should have an attorney in this process to ensure independent and competent advice.

At my law office, we will educate you and help you meet your fundamental objectives. Get the information you need to make the right decision. Creating a prenuptial agreement (if you decide to do so) that will fulfill the goals you have in mind or making sure the prenuptial agreement you have been asked to sign is fair to you is of utmost importance.

Understand The Potential Benefits, Requirements And Processes When Entering A Prenuptial Agreement

Common reasons in favor of prenuptial agreements include:

  • You and your spouse-to-be have widely divergent asset portfolios. One is significantly better off financially than the other.
  • You or your spouse wants reassurance that in case of a divorce, you would not be left penniless.
  • One or both of you have children from previous relationships. You acknowledge that it is fair and right to protect your children's interests through a prenuptial agreement.
  • One or both of you have been married before and you acknowledge realistically that it is smart to explore "what if" questions — and decide on answers to those questions — before the wedding day.

Talking to an experienced Tennessee family law attorney can help resolve any dilemmas you have as you decide whether to push for or accept a prenuptial agreement. The same is true if you seek a postnuptial agreement or your spouse has asked you to consider signing such an agreement. Each party must make full disclosure of all assets and should have a fundamental understanding of how you agree that property should be divided in case of divorce or death.
