Protecting Premarital Property
You didn’t believe that you would ever need a prenuptial agreement, despite the property that came with you to your marriage. You intended to be married forever, but things have changed. Now, you are seeking a divorce and you want to keep the property that you owned before you were ever married.
Is it Possible?
Whether or not you will be able to avoid sharing your premarital property with your soon to be ex-spouse is completely fact specific. It may be possible, but it may be difficult and in some cases ultimately impossible.
Accordingly, we can’t stress enough the importance of having a prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement in place even if you think you won’t ever need it. You might not ever need it in which case it has done you no harm. However, you might need your prenup during a difficult time and it might save you a lot of fighting, a lot of heartache and a lot of money.
