Save Yourself, Get a Prenup

We carefully explain the law on prenups, divorces and spousal support to prevent either party from later claiming they didn't understand it.

USA, 13 March 2017 -- There's a standard misconception that prenups are only for the wealthy and famous. On the other hand, the present fiscal crisis and increasing rate of divorce make prenups something every couple should consent to create as a means to safeguard the assets they each have.

A prenuptial agreement, aka "prenup", is a legally binding contract formed with a couple before marriage which details how their property is going to be divvied up when they get a divorce. Ideally, the prenup needs to be entered into at least 30 days prior to the union to avoid any claims of coercion-a common reason prenups are deemed invalid. Additionally, each party needs to be represented by their particular attorney so there isn't any conflict of interest.

With no prenup, a couple is subject to state law which in many cases results in a section of assets neither party anticipated or desired. State courts consider two kinds of property in divorce proceeding: married and individual. Marital property includes all income and property acquired through the marriage by either partner. All income and property comprises wages and bonuses, real estate, business income, as well as benefits accrued in 401(k), IRA, and pension plans. Independent property includes assets owned by each spouse before marriage and any bequests received throughout the union.

How marital property is split depends on the where the couple gets divorced. Most states are "individual property" states which use "equitable distribution", a process where the property is broken up predicated on equity, taking into consideration variables like the amount of the union as well as the presence of kids. Nine states, including Texas and California, are "community property" states. These states typically divide the property fiftyfifty without consideration to the totality of the situation. This could have devastating consequences, specifically for the partner who brought in the primary income for the household. Of both approaches, the individual property system is the most fair system, but additionally it is tougher to implement considering that the court's have to "track" back the income and purchases and every partner.

Understandably, no one desires to visualize becoming divorced, but now more than ever before, individuals should protect the things they've and get a prenup. The minimal expense of carrying out this kind of arrangement unquestionably outweighs the possible losses you could suffer without one, particularly if your home is in among the nine community property states. To find out more about forming a prenuptial agreement you ought to get in touch with a family law/divorce lawyer.
