When drafting your prenuptial agreement in Michigan, you should be well informed. You should be very careful of what you put on your prenuptial agreement and how you will discuss it. With that, you must be prepared in the process of preparing for your marriage.
In this article, Haque Legal discusses the important things that you need to do when drafting your prenuptial agreement and what you can do to help yourself in the process. Read on to find out more.
Be decided on getting a prenuptial or antenuptial agreement
It should be decided, individually and as a couple, that you are getting a prenup. At the very least, you must be open to the idea of it.
It is only proper that we give you the best legal advice and we say that you should get a prenup. Whatever the statistics say about getting a prenup or getting married, the truth of the matter is that you need to protect yourself and your assets, from anyone. You also need to protect your children from a prior marriage or your family’s properties.
Whether you are head over heels in love or not, you need to always look at your family’s assets and future and not just yours. The fact that you are in love does not mean that you can just let go of your responsibility to your family.
Hence, you should decide on getting a prenup or, at the very least, be open to the idea of getting a prenup, nothing more and nothing less. You should do this for your present and future children.
Discuss the goal of getting a prenup with your partner
Getting a prenup is not just getting one for the sake of it. You should discuss the goal of getting a prenup with your partner as much as you possibly can. The goal is not just so you can be prepared for your marriage but it is so that you can be both well informed about your assets and liabilities, what would it mean to marry the other, as well as what should you expect from your partner in case everything does not work out in your relationship. These are important goals that go beyond properties and assets, this is your life.
If your partner is not keen on getting a prenup, you should still discuss it. It is not as negative as one would think of it but is necessary. Legally speaking, the entanglements that you legally get when you get married are bigger and greater than the emotional entanglements that you would get, remember this.
Discuss properties with your parents or children or any person who will be affected by the marriage
While it only takes two people to get married and fall in love, a marriage requires a whole village, a whole family. You have your parents, your partner has his parents and you also have your children.
When you are drafting a prenuptial agreement in Michigan, you must discuss your properties with your parents. Will you inherit property in the future that your future spouse may also be entitled to? Are your parents okay with it? You must know this part so that you and your partner can better prepare for what is to come.
Any person who will be affected by the marriage should also be a part of some discussions. You do not need to disclose the whole prenup to every person, you just need to discuss the property relations with them and what they should expect should there be a property dispute or a property affected by the marriage.
This is specifically important especially when you have children from a prior marriage. Your children from a prior marriage are entitled to child support or some properties coming from the previous marriage. No matter how much love you have for your present partner, you should not forget your responsibility to your children.
There is a lot more that you should do when you are drafting your prenuptial agreement. Read on the next part of this article series.
