Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer in Mason City
Information on Prenuptial Agreements
It might seem a bit contrary or negative to prepare an agreement that lays
out the distribution of assets during a divorce when you are about to
be involved in what is usually the happiest day of your life in planning
out and engaging in a marriage.
Most couples are planning for a successful and happy life together when
they decide to be married. However, when there are assets at stake being
brought to the marriage on the part of one or both spouses, or there are
children from a prior marriage with either spouse, then it is the wise
thing to do to protect everyone's interests.
Laying Down the Facts
Statistics show that over 50% of marriages end in divorce. You may have
no intention of that happening to your marriage; nevertheless, having
an understanding in advance of the agreements on child support, alimony,
property division and other important issues is important to your peace
of mind. This type of agreement can be easily prepared with an experienced,
considerate and caring family law attorney.
At McGuire Law, PLC we care about our clients and want to get you started
on the right footing in your marriage. Working together now as a couple
will ensure that family issues that may arise in the future are not a
problem. It is also helpful in case of a spouse's death as all financial
issues involving assets are discussed in the prenuptial agreement.
Creating a Legally Binding Prenuptial Agreement
When a couple files a prenuptial agreement in Iowa, it is a legally binding
