The Valuable Role Of Prenuptial Agreements In Modern Marriage
Prenuptial agreements have been around for a long time, but they have become increasingly popular in recent decades. They are especially important for individuals who come into marriage with substantial assets, including family business interests, or who want to financially protect children from previous relationships. Whatever your reasons for seeking a prenup, our Oakland County family law attorneys at Eisenberg & Spilman, PLLC, can help you establish a thorough and enforceable agreement.
We Can Help You Safeguard Your Important Assets Through A Prenuptial Agreement
Our firm serves as a trusted resource for men and women seeking to protect their separate and premarital assets through prenuptial agreements in their first, second and subsequent marriages. Although many of our clients initially believe that entering into a prenuptial agreement is a sign of uncertainty or mistrust in a relationship, we want to help you understand how it may be one of the best decisions you can make to prepare for your marriage.
In Michigan, both parties must fully disclose their assets when establishing a prenuptial agreement. This can help you and your future spouse consider important financial questions you might have, such as:
- How can I protect my family business and plan for business succession?
- What is the value of my business or the business my future spouse owns, as well as the value of the income that the business generates?
- What happens to my inheritance in the event of my death or divorce?
- How can I financially protect my children from my prior relationship(s)?
Over the years, our attorneys have earned a reputation for their effective representation of clients in high-asset divorce cases. Because of our in-depth knowledge of the problems that can arise during divorce, we are able to draft thorough and clear prenuptial agreements designed to prevent these problems and to protect our clients’ interests. If divorce ever becomes necessary, a well-written prenuptial agreement should make the divorce process faster and more predictable by defining the terms of property division and other factors well in advance.
Our firm collaborates with real estate appraisers, CPAs, tax attorneys, accountants and specialized appraisers, as necessary, to ensure that you fully understand how to best protect your assets when creating your prenuptial agreement.
