It seems like an obvious assumption that (under ordinary circumstances) no engaged couple wants to think about getting a divorce. If they were going to get divorced someday, they wouldn’t get married in the first place… right? While this seems logical, the fact remains that the U.S. divorce rate continues to hover right around 50%. No couple thinks it could happen to them, but unfortunately, about half of them will be proven wrong at some point in their marriage.
Because divorce is a fact of life for so many people in the United States, the team at Deputy & Mizell, LLC wants to encourage you to be proactive about protecting yourself and your assets as you enter into a marriage. If you haven’t thought about establishing a prenuptial (or postnuptial) agreement yet, now is the time.
Prenuptial Agreements – What’s The Point?
We wish you and your fiance all the best and we sincerely hope your new marriage will last a lifetime. However, we do encourage you to be prepared and protect yourself from unforeseen challenges. If you are interested in establishing a prenuptial agreement at the Lake of the Ozarks, we encourage you to set up an appointment with one of our family attorneys in Camden County, MO. At our trusted central Missouri law firm, your initial consultation is always free!
