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 document. When working with our prospective spouses, we encourage our clients to discuss all financial issues prior to the marriage so there is a clear understanding on the part of both parties as to what would occur in the event of death or divorce.
