Maryland Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer
Marriage and Premarital Agreements
When a couple makes the decision to get married, it is an excellent choice for a couple to obtain a prenuptial agreement, also known as a prenup or premarital agreement. A prenuptial agreement basically states what both spouses wishes are if the decision should ever be made to file for separation or
divorce. It will spell out precisely what type of
spousal support or
alimony will be paid, who gets what property and assets, businesses,
child custody or
child visitation and who will be required to pay
child support in the event of separation, divorce, or a spouse’s death.
In the state of Maryland, a prenuptial agreement is a legally binding document. It can be of great comfort to both parties in a marriage because it can help to avoid a long drawn out court battle if a divorce should ever take place. It is also a very positive way for a soon to be couple to communicate their needs and what they want in regards to a marriage. For instance, if a spouse has a business and does not want the other spouse to have any rights to the business if they should divorce, this can be written in a prenuptial agreement and will be upheld by the family law courts.
