What is a Prenuptial Agreement?

Hi, once again Bradley Cordts here to talk to you about divorce. One of the things we often get questions on are Prenuptial Agreements. A Prenuptial Agreement can be entered into prior to a marriage. It’s highly recommended if you have significant assets, if you’ve just come off of another marriage that’s ended, you have significant separate property, and/or you have other assets you wish to be sort of pre-determined prior to getting into the marriage. The key is full disclosure to the other side. That the other side may have an opportunity to review what you’re disclosing and then you make the agreement at somewhat arm’s length with the other party. Those are a couple of tests to see if your prenuptial agreement will stand up in court if the worst case scenario happens, and why you do a prenuptial agreement, this new marriage ends in divorce. It’s a good idea to come in and talk to us if you’re thinking about getting re-married and you have significant assets. Let a good Memphis family lawyer, look over what you’ve got and see what we can do for you.
