A PreNup, sometimes known as a “premarital” or “ante-nuptial” agreement are all pretty much the same thing. It’s a legally binding agreement that helps a couple establish rules over property, debts, income and expenses. We recommend them because in the event of a divorce or separation, it will inevitably make the entire process go by in an easier fashion. However, most couples don’t use them. If you really think about it, it almost feels unnatural. Many couples feel its as if your giving up on your marriage before it’s even begun. Although it’s not the most romantic thing in the world to do and it’s rare, more and more couples are using prenups to protect themselves. RCM Law offices has extensive experience in drawing up these legal contracts so both persons can remain happy and feel safe in the event of a separation.
