The idea of a signing a financial agreement before marriage can make both parties uncomfortable. However, when carefully thought-out and explained, a prenuptial agreement is designed to put both parties at ease in the event of the unforeseen. When it comes to dealing with divorce, incapacitation or death, a clearly designed plan of asset allocation protects all involved. A prenuptial agreement in Las Vegas allows for the parties to determine what they want to happen, rather than the defaults of Nevada law to determine the case. The basic idea is that both parties can have protection because they know what they are agreeing to prior to entering into the legal contract of marriage.
There are many reasons to look at a prenuptial agreement. There could be significant assets one party has acquired, or children from another marriage. In case there is a divorce later in the relationship, you want to be sure that there is a minimal amount of worry and stress. This is the primary reason people look at prenuptial agreements. The assets a person has built prior to a marriage should be protected.
Another situation where a prenuptial agreement is common is when there are multiple business partners forming a business and all the partners agree to have any new spouse sign a prenuptial agreement that excludes the business from any ownership claims. This protects the interests of all the founders. It can be an awkward conversation to have with your new love, but it is far better than having to explain to your partners why they are now involved in your divorce and their interests may be compromised.
