Create a contract of trust with a prenuptial agreement.
Too often, a prenuptial agreement is viewed as documented proof of the expected failure of a marriage. Here at the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter, we believe that divorce has very little to do with your prenuptial agreement and is more of a contract of trust and financial transparency between spouses than a promise of failed marriage.
A prenuptial agreement should be viewed as an extension of marriage rather than a plan for divorce. While it can protect both parties of a marriage contract as well as their finances in the case of divorce, it can also help you establish what would happen to any shared property, assets, and blended family members in the event of estate planning.
Along with that, a prenuptial agreement could help you and your spouse bring to light any issues that might need to be faced before marriage. It will establish financial transparency that will set an equal partnership between you and your spouse going into marriage. That equal partnership could leave a positive impact all throughout your marriage that you might not have found so easily otherwise.
It’s important to remember that your prenuptial agreement is a contract just like your marriage contract, meaning a legal document that must be drafted by a family law attorney. We are the right person to do that for you. If you are in need of an attorney you can trust to have your best interests in mind as we draft your prenuptial agreement in the Pineville, North Carolina area, contact us today.
