Whether you have significant assets, children from a former marriage, or you are a young professional, you want to make sure that your rights and financial interests are protected should you ever face a divorce.

Having an agreement in place can benefit you in the following ways:

  • Income earned during the marriage and assets you purchase with that income can be protected from division with your spouse.
  • Debts incurred by your future spouse can remain his or her sole responsibility.
