You are busy planning your wedding and getting ready for your marriage. With so much joyful anticipation, it is often challenging to think about the legal and financial aspects of your upcoming nuptials. You want to believe that your love will last forever, and we hope that it will. However, in 2018 alone, 28,186 couples divorced in Michigan.

Prepare and Protect Each Other With a Prenuptial Agreement

There is no one size fits all approach to prenuptial planning. Prenuptial agreements, sometimes called antenuptial agreements in Michigan, are as unique as each couple that creates one. Some of the issues that may be included in a prenup include:

Please note that child support and child custody of unborn children should not be included in your prenuptial agreement. Any stipulations of this sort are not valid under Michigan law.

Make Sure Your Michigan Prenup Is Enforceable

A prenuptial agreement is not only for couples with a lot of money or couples who worry about divorce. Instead, a prenup provides a peaceful roadmap for you and your spouse if you decide to end your marriage.

Both spouses must voluntarily sign an enforceable prenuptial agreement. Additionally, the contract must be fair, equitable, and each spouse should fully understand the other spouse’s financial situation before signing the agreement.
