Reality Check: Why Should You Consider Getting A Prenup Agreement in Michigan?


Are you getting married soon? You should consider getting a prenup in Michigan, or wherever you may live.

Here at Haque Legal, we can help you with your prenup agreement. What are the things that you need to know about when you are considering getting a prenup agreement? Let us look at some of the things.

What is a Prenup Agreement?

A Prenup agreement or antenuptial agreements in Michigan are considered as agreements entered into by parties prior to a marriage in Michigan. The end goal is to provide property protection and protection of rights in case the marriage does not work out, either one of the parties die, or when the marriage ends for any other reason. 

Is a Prenup Agreement Required?

No, you are not required to get a prenuptial agreement. However, since the statistics do not lie and parties have a fifty percent chance of getting a divorce, it is important that a prenuptial agreement be considered by the parties prior to their marriage.

Specifically, getting a prenup agreement is necessary for the following parties:

When you have children from a prior marriage

When it is you who have children from a prior marriage and you also gained property from that prior marriage, it is only proper that you protect the rights of your children to that property. Make sure that you get everything in writing and that your partner knows that the properties you have from the previous marriage are not yours as a couple but belong to your children.

When you have properties that you want to stay on your side of the family, if you do not have children in the marriage.

Generational wealth may exist and you may be one of the lucky few. Generally, if you have this kind of wealth, you need to make sure that only you and your side of the family will continue being entitled to such property even if you do get married with someone else.

When your partner asks you for one

When your partner asks you for a prenup, they are not just asking just for the sake of it, there may be a reason behind it. It is not a lack of trust that could make your partner ask for a prenup but just being realistic about life and how it eventually pans out.

When you want to protect your property from your partner’s children from a prior marriage

This seems harsh, and it is. The reality of life is that you may marry someone who has a child or children from a prior marriage or out of wedlock. When you have properties that your spouse will be entitled to once you get married, and you decide not to have children or not have any children, it is possible that the child or children of your spouse prior to the marriage may get entitled to the properties that you own prior to the marriage. 

What if your spouse passes away before you? What are the chances that the child will go after your own property? We have seen these in the show that we watch but you can never be too careful, especially when you work so hard for your own property.

These reasons are practical and as straightforward as it can get. You should consider these reasons when you are also considering marrying your partner.
