You probably aren’t thinking about prenups while you’re basking in that newly-engaged glow, but check out this advice from divorce attorney and founder of HelloPrenup, Julia Rodgers, about why you should consider one before you head down the aisle.
A prenuptial agreement (or as the kids say, “prenup”) is a legal agreement between two fiancées who are engaged to be married. A prenup must be executed before marriage. That’s right, you cannot wait until after the big day to create your prenup.
Back to Basics: What is a prenup & what can it do?
If you do not have a prenup in place and you get divorced, the divorce law of your state will determine how your property will be divided. So it's important to have a prenup in place on YOUR terms in case of the unexpected.
What happens if I don’t get a prenup?
Generally, yes, if you work with an attorney to draft a custom prenuptial agreement it can be quite costly. But, of course, we have a savvy alternative to share!
