Why Hire a Lawyer to Draft Your Prenuptial Agreement?

Protect Your Assets for Your Children

Whether you own a small business or have a large inheritance, it may important that these assets remain in the family, especially if you have children from a previous marriage. Also specific pieces of personal property can be protected; you can ensure a grandmothers wedding ring, an heirloom china set, or antique furniture stays with specific children. Having an attorney draft the prenuptial document can reduce your worries about the provisions and the possibility of the document being declared invalid.

Reduce the Likelihood of Expensive Litigation

A do-it-yourself prenuptial agreement may be quicker and cheaper in the short term, but it could result in long, expensive court battles in the future. If your assets are worth protecting, then it is worth your time and expense to hire an attorney.
