The general public seems to think that only the Hollywood stars or mega-wealthy benefit from a Premarital Agreement. This is not true. Think of a Premarital Agreement as a roadmap or insurance policy in the event that your marriage unfortunately ends in divorce.
Generally speaking, anyone who owns a business, home, or other assets that they want to protect in the event of a divorce can benefit from a Premarital Agreement. Such an agreement can also potentially protect or limit someone’s exposure to pay spousal support. At a minimum, part of your engagement or wedding plans should include speaking with an attorney concerning the extent to which you can benefit from a Premarital Agreement.
