Nobody enters into a marriage with the expectation that it will eventually end in divorce. However, the reality is that nearly 40 percent of marriages may not last forever. We understand the importance of safeguarding our clients' property and financial interests, which is why we assist in creating well-crafted prenuptial agreements.
Prenuptial agreements offer numerous advantages to couples contemplating marriage. Beyond safeguarding assets, these agreements serve to preserve inheritance rights and can significantly reduce the time, expenses, and conflicts often associated with divorce proceedings.
While prenuptial agreements are commonly associated with protecting spouses who possess substantial assets, individuals without extensive wealth can also benefit from them. A well-crafted prenuptial agreement not only safeguards your property and financial interests in the event of a future divorce but also shields you from potential debts incurred by your spouse. Furthermore, it can help ensure that any separate property, owned by one spouse before the marriage, remains distinct and exempt from division as a community asset during divorce.
Prenuptial agreements often provide protection primarily to one spouse, potentially leaving the other spouse at a disadvantage. This can be especially true for spouses with lower incomes or those who choose to sacrifice their careers to care for minor children after marriage. We offer valuable advice and guidance to clients who are contemplating signing prenuptial agreements.
McLean & Associates L.L.C. conducts a thorough review of the proposed prenuptial agreement's terms to ensure that our clients' interests are adequately safeguarded in the event of a divorce. Additionally, we meticulously examine the property and financial holdings of both prospective spouses, ensuring that all parties have been transparent and fully disclosed the true extent of their financial circumstances.
Moreover, our firm provides assistance to individuals who wish to challenge the validity of improperly executed prenuptial agreements during the divorce process.
