How Can I Protect My Assets Following Divorce?
Prenuptial agreements are meant to protect one’s particular interests, such as a major investment or a home. As an example, let’s say that you purchased the home with your personal finances before you were married. Your agreement can include the direction that you wish for the house to remain separate property when it comes to property division settlements. This can ensure that your home remains solely your property and your financial responsibility — your spouse would not be able to make any claim or interest in the house.
The following are some of the most common reasons for a prenuptial agreement:
- You are entering a second marriage
- You have inherited property or you own an estate
- To protect your personal finances if your spouse has a high amount of debt
- When one partner earns more than the other or possesses significantly more wealth
- If you have a stake in or own a significant part of a business
- You have plans to leave your current career and focus on raising your family

To ensure that your rights are protected, we urge you to seek legal counsel to discuss your situation.
