Prenuptial Agreement And Premarital Agreements?

Prenuptial Agreement And Premarital Agreements?

Before you get married, you may want to enter into a prenuptial or premarital agreement.  This is especially the case if you are getting married for the second or third time.  Thankfully, an experienced Ohio family law attorney can draft an agreement that will fully express your wishes.

The Difference

With the help of a skilled Ohio attorney, this type of agreement can be used to create a comprehensive set of terms to attempt to govern property division, child custody, and child support in the event of divorce.  Depending on the amount of property entering your marriage, as well as the number and age of any children, a premarital agreement may be the right option for you.

A prenuptial agreement, can cover an array of concerns and substantially simplify the equitable division of marital property, including any commingled assets.

Importantly, to be valid in the state of Ohio, a prenuptial agreement must meet certain requirements.  You and your spouse-to-be must disclose all of your property to one another.  In addition, you must disclose all of your debts to one another.  Also, the agreement must be fair.  Fairness is sometimes in the eye of the beholder, so it is imperative that you have a skilled attorney draft and review the agreement to ensure that it will be deemed fair in the eyes of the law.

Timing is another key factor in the drafting of a valid prenuptial agreement in the state of Ohio.  It is critical that you and your spouse sign the agreement before you marry.  Not only that, but you and your spouse must take ample time to consider the agreement before you each sign.  In other words, don’t rush into it!  

Consider Legal Help

All in all, to ensure that a prenuptial or premarital agreement is valid and thereby enforceable in the event of divorce, rely on the skill and experience of an Ohio family law attorney.
