Prenuptial Agreements for Second Marriages
A prenuptial agreement can be a smart estate planning options for those who are entering into second marriages. For instance, you may already have minor or adult children when you remarry, and a prenuptial agreement can protect the inheritance rights of those existing children.
A carefully crafted prenuptial agreement can help eliminate the possibility of probate dispute between the children of your first marriage and your second spouse. Prenuptial agreements are also commonly used when there is a significant disparity in assets between the two people entering into the marriage.
Some Benefits of Prenuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements are sometimes viewed as cynical and counter to a loving relationship. Attorney Lisa Millican Ewing wholeheartedly disagrees with that notion. Setting up a prenuptial agreement can be a loving gesture. It removes the money element from a marriage, allowing the union to be about what is most important — love.
Prenuptial agreements can serve other purposes, as well. They can protect the valuable assets individuals owned before getting married, including:
- 401(k) plans, pensions, and savings plans
- Insurance policies
- Real estate ventures
- Family-owned businesses
We develop effective prenuptial agreements that help eliminate the need to worry about future financial issues. Ms. Ewing works closely with each client to understand their individual needs and goals, then clearly outlines how assets will be distributed in the event the marriage ends or one spouse becomes incapacitated or dies.
