Marriage is looked upon as the beginning of a wonderful journey that a couple will share for the rest of their lives in Missouri. The reality is that almost half of all marriages end in divorce. People enter into it promise to share worldly goods, support each other and care for each other in sickness and health. Divorce can change this perspective, particularly where worldly goods are concerned. Having a prenuptial agreement can simplify property division.
Having a prenuptial agreement may even reduce the chance of divorce. In addition to financial concerns, another cause for a marriage ending is a lack of communication. Establishing clear lines of communication needed to create a prenuptial agreement can help forge skills that can last a lifetime.
A prenuptial agreement allows each partner to have a say in division of assets in the event of a divorce. Spousal support may also be addressed. The prenup can spell out divisions of physical belongings, assets, debt and other concerns. A couple does not have to be wealthy to benefit from a prenup. Most people have something they would want to protect.
A couple considering marriage in Missouri may wish to consult with a family law attorney regarding the creation of a prenuptial agreement. A marriage that starts off on a strong foundation of communication and understanding has a better chance of lasting. A knowledgeable family law attorney can help evaluate a couple’s financial position and guide them in the process of writing a comprehensive agreement. Such a move is sure to get a marriage off on the right foot.
