Denver Marital Agreements: Who Needs Them And Why
Marital agreements, including prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements, used to be viewed with suspicion as potentially unfair or cold-hearted. In fact, there is no reason to fear, and potentially much to gain, from discussing the possibility of a prenup before marriage. Even married couples may also benefit from creating postnuptial agreements or revising existing prenups by mutual agreement.
Many of today’s couples have moved beyond the outdated stereotypes of past generations. Engaged partners and married couples often have children from previous marriages, dual careers, large and complex assets, and substantial age differences. For all these reasons, a prenup or postnup may be the legal tool you need to settle financial issues thoughtfully and proactively with your partner.
The Law Offices of Rodger C. Daley and Associates can provide the guidance and assistance that you need to make a marital agreement work for you.
6 Ways A Prenup Or Postnup Can Help
Some common reasons for having discussions about prenups or postnups include efforts to accomplish one or more of the following objectives:
- To protect the inheritances of children from previous relationships
- To agree before marriage on children’s religious education or other key aspects of their upbringing
- To prevent financial problems for businesses or professional practices in case of a divorce
- To avoid costly litigation in the event of a divorce
- To voluntarily do some legwork in anticipation of a divorce
- To facilitate a reconciliation after a couple has experienced marital troubles
