Connecticut has its fair share of wealthy individuals. Many of these people will find themselves getting married and perhaps divorced in the future. It may be in the best interest of any couple getting married to draw up a prenuptial agreement to make any potential division of property go smoother. – Connecticut Divorce Lawyer

Though it may not be necessary for first-time marriages, experts suggest that anyone getting remarried later in life should definitely consider the option of a prenup. As people age, their financial estates become complicated and often more valuable. To ensure that your family — most likely, your children — gets what it expects, a prenuptial agreement can be used to divide estates and keep them separate.

Of course, this does not mean the couple cannot share money or assets. Many do so and find themselves happy being able to share with their spouse while at the same time knowing that important assets will not be affected without their consent.

Prenuptial agreements are not necessarily only for finances and asset division. Some couples use them to dictate how children will be raised if there is a divorce.

Prenuptial agreements are not just for those heading into their second or third marriage, though. First-timers may want to consider it if there is a large difference between net worth of the soon-to-be spouses. This may mean that one is generally wealthier than the other or will be in the near future if a massive inheritance is expected. It could also mean that one spouse has a massive amount of debt compared to the other.
