Columbia Pre-Nuptial Agreements
Advantages of Signing a Pre-Nuptial Agreement
If you are approaching marriage but are concerned about what might happen to your personal assets in the event of a divorce, you can benefit greatly from executing a pre-nuptial agreement with your future spouse. Whether you are a high income earner, a business owner or if you possess or expect an inheritance, a pre-nuptial agreement can serve to safeguard your personal estate from the claims of your spouse in case the marriage ends prematurely, but these agreements are not only for the wealthy. Couples with ordinary income and assets can enjoy the benefits of a pre-nuptial agreement or
postnuptial agreement, as it is capable of contributing significantly to the stability of your marriage.
While some people think of a pre-nuptial agreement as being a cynical measure which predicts that the marriage will end in divorce, the reverse is true in many cases. Arguments and stress over finances and property rights are a leading cause of strife in a large number of marriages, and they frequently cause or contribute to a divorce. By clearly defining who owns what and what would happen in the event of a divorce in relation to questions of property division and
alimony, you and your spouse can avoid much of this potential for conflict. Many couples actually report that having a pre-nuptial agreement in place at the beginning of the marriage has the effect of making the relationship even more secure and peaceful.
