Nobody (or almost nobody) enters a marriage expecting to get divorced down the line. Yet the possibility of divorce prompts some people to want to protect their assets if things go wrong. Through the use of a prenuptial agreement (PNA), a legal contract that is meant to addresses a specific relationship situation, these individuals plan for uncomfortable contingencies rather than take their chances.
When you have substantial money in stocks, investments, and property, it is vital to protect your assets. Like it or not, you have plenty to lose. A prenuptial agreement is a legal document designed to protect everything you have worked hard to earn in the event of a divorce. Simply making a list of your assets is just part of the process. An attorney can help properly organize your paperwork to create a comprehensive PNA to fit your needs. It is critical to have an experienced and knowledgeable Salt Lake City prenuptial agreement lawyer on your side to ensure all of your assets and interest are protected.
Many people are worried to draft a PNA because it may offend your fiance. But if you are truly meant to be with that person, they will understand. If your fiancé(e) or partner (or his or her lawyer or family) wants you to sign a PNA, it may be in your best interest to seek legal advice. This is generally unpleasant, but it is important to protect yourself from future harm.
