Are you unsure about whether to sign a prenuptial agreement before getting married? Contact a New Hampshire family lawyer immediately. Your New Hampshire family law attorney will be able to explain the legal aspects of prenuptial agreements so that you can make an informed decision.
The Benefits Of A Prenup Or Cohabitation Agreement
Prenuptial agreements have nothing to do with your personal relationship and everything to do with preventing conflicts before they arise. For example, if one partner is significantly wealthier than the other and a divorce becomes unavoidable later, then having a prenuptial agreement can make the separation process much smoother. Partners who choose to live together without getting married do forfeit certain legal rights and protections.
Married persons can seek property settlements or support after a divorce. They can also file joint tax returns, receive survivor’s benefits, and automatically share in their husband’s or wife’s property if they die without a will. Unmarried couples who choose to cohabitate must define these kinds of rights themselves through the use of cohabitation agreements. If you separate, then the law may consider you and your former partner strangers unless you take steps ahead of time. Speak to our firm today to make sure you are fully protected.
