A poorly made prenuptial agreement protects no one

A prenuptial agreement is only an invitation for greater conflict both inside and outside of your marriage if it is carefully, professionally crafted. Far too many couples have created faulty prenups and seen them crumble when they were needed. If you and your future spouse are considering creating a prenuptial agreement, be sure to take all the proper precautions to ensure that it is valid and dependable.

Creating a fair, well-crafted prenuptial agreement that provides for your pets is a helpful way to prepare for how your marriage will consider your pets and ensure that, even in a worst case scenario, your animal family members are properly provided for.

Does high asset divorce have to be messy?

When divorce involves significant assets, it is very unlikely that the matter can be settled without proper legal guidance. While some couples who have very few assets may choose to divorce quickly and simply without lawyering up when there are significant assets on the table, that willingness to simply walk away and call "no harm, no foul" is exceptionally rare. So, how can you keep your divorce civil and professional when it involves significant assets?
