Legal Things To Do When Drafting Your Prenup Agreement in Michigan


In the article Initial Things To Do When Drafting Your Prenup Agreement in Michigan, we have discussed the important initial things to do when you are drafting your prenuptial agreement in Michigan. 

In this article, we continue our discussion on the things that you should do when drafting a prenuptial agreement in Michigan. Read on to find out more.

Make sure that you list down your separate assets and liabilities 

When you list down your separate assets and liabilities, you will most likely get an overview of what you need to do, who you need to talk to, and what are the things that will most likely be affected by the marriage. Imagine the likelihood of a divorce and what would happen if you get a divorce, what would happen to these assets and liabilities based on your State law? 

Your separate assets and liabilities may refer primarily to you only and belong to you. In this case, you should be more careful about what you put on the prenuptial agreement and what would happen in case you get a divorce in Michigan. 

When you list down your separate assets and liabilities, you will also see which ones should be transferred to your children or your ex-spouse before the next marriage. Which properties belong to someone else that is under your name? These are very important as it ensures that you would have the best kind of property arrangement that works for you and your spouse.

Sit down and talk about what kind of arrangement you are more comfortable with

Sit down with your future spouse. Talk about the kind of arrangement that you are more comfortable with. Getting a clear boundary from the beginning is a good idea. You are letting your partner know, from the beginning, which parts you are comfortable with and which parts are not good for you. 

In this part, you should keep an open mind. You are marrying this person for a reason and you should consider getting a prenuptial agreement for both of you. This way, whatever happens to the marriage, you and your partner will still carry love in the process of the divorce.

Talk to a lawyer

You need to talk to a lawyer. Get a lawyer who you can talk to and who can take care of you. Each party, you and your fiance, should have their lawyer to discuss their rights. This is not for a lack of trust towards each other but it just makes good business sense.

When you talk to a lawyer, who you hired yourself, you are getting the best kind of treatment. Here at Haque Legal, no matter how head over heels in love our client may be, we always look at his or her rights first because that is what we are hired to do. Make sure that you talk to a lawyer who understands you as an individual, this is exactly what we can do for you at Haque Legal.

Draft, Re-draft, Assess, Reassess

Once you have your own sets of lawyers. You should be ready for the legal process that comes next – the negotiation. The negotiation part is the reason why talking to and getting a lawyer is one of the best legal steps that you can make when you are in the process of getting a prenuptial agreement. 

Drafting and redrafting until you and your partner are both happy is a lawyer’s job. While you prepare for your wedding or plan your life with marital bliss, you should keep in mind that you can have the lawyers handle the legalities. You will, after all, sign off on any arrangement before it happens so you just need to fully trust the lawyer that you hire.
