Jackson Prenuptial Agreements Lawyers Draft Documents That Protect Your Assets

Dedicated Tennessee family law attorneys help engaged couples plan for their future

No one enters into marriage with the expectation that they will divorce, but if you have substantial assets or children from a prior marriage, it is a good idea to be prepared for that possibility. A prenuptial agreement not only may make divorce simpler by resolving potentially thorny issues in advance, but it might also be useful if one of you dies during the marriage. Even if you are already married, it is not too late to plan ahead, through a postnuptial agreement. At Grant & Sain, PLLC, in Jackson, we provide reliable advice on marital agreements and can prepare one that effectively meets your needs and withstands legal scrutiny.

When prenuptial agreements are worth considering

Prenuptial agreements may be advisable for you and your future spouse if these circumstances exist:

  • One or both of you have valuable property or large debt.
  • One of you is substantially wealthier than the other.
  • One or both of you were previously married or have children by other partners for whom you want to provide.

As experienced family lawyers, we are able to provide knowledgeable advice on the benefits of prenuptial agreements and will help you decide whether one is appropriate for you and your soon-to-be spouse.

Proven lawyers advise on the issues that can be covered in marital agreements

Before drafting a prenup, we will meet with you to determine what issues you want to address and may suggest additional considerations you may not have thought of. The agreement might address such matters as:

  • Each of your rights and obligations concerning property and debts
  • The distribution of property upon death, legal separation or divorce
  • Whether one or both of you should have life insurance
  • Whether either of you should get alimony in the event of divorce and, if so, how much
  • The care of your children in the event of the death of either or both of you

We will negotiate and draft an agreement that addresses all of the issues you and your spouse agree to include. We also assist married couples with postnuptial agreements that cover similar considerations. It’s important to note that Tennessee law does not permit couples to make child custody and support arrangements in a prenuptial agreement, because family courts have the ultimate authority to make those determinations based on what they consider to be in the child’s best interests.

Thorough lawyers draft marital agreements that satisfy Tennessee law

Not every marital agreement is enforceable in Tennessee. The law imposes certain requirements that a prenup or postnup must meet:

  • Both parties must fully disclose their assets and debts before signing it.
  • Both parties should fully understand the terms of the agreement or have their own attorneys while negotiating and drafting it.
  • The agreement should be reasonably fair to both parties.
  • It should not be the result of fraud, duress or coercion.

We will work with you to fashion an agreement that meets your desired objectives while also satisfying these legal requirements. It’s our goal to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your assets are protected in the event your marriage ends.
