Chicago Family Law Attorney for Prenuptial Agreements

For most people considering a prenuptial agreement, one of the biggest concerns is whether the agreement will represent their best interests and whether it will hold up in court.

The Benefits of Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements are a smart investment to prepare for a future possibility. Looking into this type of agreement does not negate the love that you have for your future spouse. Ideally, you will never have to even consider your prenuptial agreement after your wedding day, but with 50 percent of marriages ending in divorce, it only makes sense to protect your interests and plan for the possibility.

A well-drafted prenuptial agreement provides many benefits, including:

  • Protecting your interests: Marriage is a financial partnership as well as an emotional partnership. If the partnership dissolves, a prenuptial agreement can serve as a protection for the assets you brought into the marriage as well as limiting your exposure to alimony and simplifying the division of property.
  • Streamlining the divorce process: Divorce can be a drawn-out, stressful and expensive ordeal. A well-drafted prenuptial agreement can streamline the process by articulating the complex divorce-related decisions ahead of time, reducing the need for expensive litigation.
  • Minimizing stress: A divorce can be contentious enough. A prenuptial agreement can minimize the stress associated with fighting out the contested matters in court.
  • Retaining control: Making choices in advance with a prenuptial agreement will keep control over these matters in your hands instead of giving control to a judge who does not know you or your best interests.
