A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract between two people planning to marry. These agreements are used to protect assets and simplify common issues the couple may face in the event of a divorce. If you are considering such an agreement, it’s crucial to contact an experienced prenuptial agreement attorney in Henderson. At Leavitt Family Law Group, we have the knowledge and experience of drafting prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that secure our clients’ interests, regardless of their financial position.
Understanding Prenuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements define how property is divided and how support is determined in the event of a divorce. They can address each spouse’s rights and obligations in separate or marital property, asset division, entitlement to alimony, and other common issues that arise during a divorce. Once the agreement is in effect, it can only be modified or revoked with the written consent of both spouses.
Properly drafted, such agreements provide financial security for both parties and can help avoid the costly and unnecessary expenses of a protracted, contested divorce process. Additionally, if the parties do not execute a prenuptial agreement before marriage, it is not too late to secure each party’s financial interests and avoid expensive litigation. A postnuptial agreement is very similar to a prenuptial one, just executed after the parties have married.

Why Should I Consider a Prenuptial Agreement?
There are many reasons to look at a prenuptial agreement. There could be significant assets one party has acquired or children from another marriage. In case of a divorce later in the relationship, you want to ensure minimal worry and stress. This is the primary reason people consider a prenuptial agreement. The assets a person has built before marriage can be protected with an appropriately crafted prenuptial agreement.
Protecting Your Business Interests
Prenuptial agreements are common when multiple business partners are forming a business. All partners agree to have any new spouse sign a prenuptial agreement that excludes the company from any ownership claims. This protects the interests of all the founders. It can be an awkward conversation with your new love, but it is far better than explaining to your business partners why they are now involved in your divorce, and their interests may be compromised.
Protecting Yourself and Your Estate
A well-crafted prenuptial agreement goes hand in hand with the estate planning that should take place before the marriage. Prenuptial agreements are common when one or both spouses has been divorced, have a higher income, or have accumulated substantial assets before the marriage. Individuals with children from prior relationships are often concerned about protecting their assets. A prenuptial agreement can ensure that a portion of the estate is preserved for their children and grandchildren.
