A prenuptial agreement can establish guidelines that pre-determine how finances, property and assets will be handled when a couple is getting married. Decisions can be made regarding who is responsible to pay certain debts, which assets are solely owned by one party and which assets will become marital property after marriage. Future misunderstandings that could later lead to marital problems can often be avoided by an effective prenuptial agreement. Our family lawyer will explain the laws that govern marital assets in Kentucky, for example, how property inherited after marriage is viewed by the courts.
Together with your attorney, you can decide what needs to be addressed in your prenuptial agreement. Should you ever decide to divorce, a prenuptial agreement may save the considerable expense of disputes over property division. Prenuptial agreements are legally upheld in all 50 U.S. states and take priority over probate, property division laws and other laws involving property. However the prenuptial agreement must be drafted in a manner that is legally sound and recognized by the courts, which is why you need the assistance of a family lawyer.
