Marriage is one of humanity’s oldest institutions, representing the love between two people and legal recognition that they are a united couple. Much of this union involves the merger of assets, along with new assets, income, and debts the spouses incur together. Unfortunately, these items can become the subject of heated debates and contested court hearings in an Indiana divorce. The Uniform Premarital Agreement Act aims to avoid these scenarios by allowing parties to agree on various issues before getting married.
There are some who view prenups as awkward and unromantic without realizing the numerous advantages. These agreements provide certainty, shield assets, and reduce the potential for costly, time-consuming litigation. Our team at The López Law Office, P.C. has extensive experience preparing, reviewing, and negotiating premarital contracts, so we are ready to serve your needs. Please contact us to set up a consultation with an Indiana prenuptial agreements lawyer today. You can also read on for some basics.
