Drafting Your Own Prenuptial Agreement

Just because the parties haven`t made the marriage contract a priority in wedding planning (or more often because one party waited until the last minute to broach the topic) doesn`t mean you should take on unnecessary responsibility for an agreement that has been prepared or verified in a hurry. Remember that your agreement has at least a one in two chance of being the subject of a dispute. Whatever time limit you deem competent and appropriate to adequately protect your client`s interests, set that time limit in your practice and stick to it. You won`t regret it. Marriage often changes your real estate, personal property and financial rights. As a result, many couples preparing for marriage use prenups to alter, enhance, or deny many of the standard legal effects of marriage.
