They are Expensive

It goes without saying that family law in and of itself is a complex area of study. After all, it involves any and all matters related to a family unit, and specific areas can include anything from adoption to custody, child support, divorce, probate, and so much more. With this in mind, it can sometimes be difficult to find the right attorney to represent your needs. Fortunately, this is where our team comes in to help.

When taking a look at family law, specifically marital concerns, one of the biggest processes that receive a bad rep is creating a premarital agreement. Indeed, premarital agreements – also known as a prenup – are a way to define your married roles as a couple when you are about to enter a civil union.

Further, there is a negative association that they are extremely expensive to implement. On the contrary, most are relatively simple and straightforward. Compared to the cost of litigation, this definition of marital rights is relatively low cost. Give our team a call today to learn more.

Only Needed if Divorce is Imminent

Another misconception about premarital agreements is that they are only needed or relevant if a couple is planning to divorce down the line. While mainstream Hollywood has glorified the prenup as a necessary precaution to protect one’s assets, the truth of the matter is that it can help guide processes during a marriage as well. For example, a prenup can define who is in charge of bank accounts and finances, how marital disputes will be handled, and how a couple will handle parenting.

They Only Benefit the Spouse with the Most Assets

As we have mentioned before, mainstream Hollywood and the media have contributed to the negative connotation that follows a premarital agreement. Further, agreements detail all aspects of a union, and most agreements that are too one-sided can and will be thrown out in court.
