Prenuptial agreements can have a negative connotation, viewed as a guarantee that a marriage will end in divorce. However, prenuptial agreements can be beneficial in many ways and do not guarantee that divorce will occur.
At the Law Office of Angela C. Larkins, Attorney at Law, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, we help our clients understand the benefits of establishing prenuptial agreements. While they can be used in the event of a divorce, they can also be used if one spouse becomes incapacitated or dies.
Do I Need a Prenuptial Agreement?
Angela Larkins is a Chattanooga prenuptial agreement attorney as well as a certified divorce financial analyst. She has in-depth understanding of the financial components of divorce, specifically as they relate to property division. A prenuptial agreement will outline asset distribution — not only in the event of a divorce but in the event one spouse dies or becomes incapacitated. Consider talking to an attorney about a prenuptial agreement if any of the following exists:
- You are entering into your second marriage. If you have minor or adult children from a previous marriage, a prenuptial agreement can protect your children’s inheritance rights. Additionally, if you die, a prenuptial agreement can help your children and your second spouse avoid a property dispute.
- You have substantial assets or there is a significant disparity in income between you and your soon-to-be spouse. A prenuptial agreement can protect your rights to premarital property and assets.
Prenuptial agreements are designed to protect many types of assets, including 401(k) plans, pension plans, savings accounts, real estate property, family-owned businesses, insurance policies and more.
