Prenuptial agreements are sometimes thought of as preparations for divorce. In reality, these premarital agreements have many purposes and can protect couples in the event of divorce, but also in the event of death and in situations where spouses have children from previous marriages. Drafting a prenuptial agreement can be beneficial for many couples, but it is important that these agreements are created fairly and correctly in order to be fully effective and enforceable. They can be important for couples for estate planning purposes, and to help define roles and expectations in the relationship. In fact, prenuptial agreements can serve to create a solid foundation to enable the relationship to grow and thrive.

Prenuptial agreements are designed to help marrying spouses, especially those with significant assets and higher incomes, to reduce potential liability, and contentious fighting in the event of divorce or death. In essence, you are developing an estate plan with your spouse in contemplation of marriage, not of divorce.
Like a will, these agreements need to be updated. The law is constantly changing regarding these agreements and some of these changes can make current agreements invalid. It is important to work with an attorney who keeps up to speed on these changes and can help you amend your agreement to reflect the current laws.
