Do you need to get a Prenup?
You are about to get married and you are thinking about a Prenup agreement. You should ask an expert at Albrecht and Albrecht in Temecula before you do anything. This may help you decide from this information according to http://money.usnews.com/
“If there are concerns around the viability of the marriage the first question should be: Should I get married? That’s an obvious question many hesitate to answer. Mostly because we resist using logic concerning an emotional event like marriage.
However, the reality is that the divorce rate in America is about 40 to 50 percent, according to the American Psychological Association.
A 2010 Harris Interactive poll of 2,323 adults revealed that 15 percent of divorced Americans regretted not having a prenup. With this fact in mind, asset-heavy, marriage-minded partners may want to consider seeking protection in the event the marriage ends. We’ve all heard stories of one partner suing the pants off the other in a divorce and walking away with half the estate.
For example, Heather Mills, now ex-wife of Paul McCartney, was awarded nearly $50 million after their divorce. Michael Jordan’s divorce from then wife Juanita Vanoy cost him $168 million.
As you can see, depending on how much you own, getting divorced can result in financial agony and cost you in the process. A prenuptial agreement may save you from a bad headache.
