People who own a business or have significant property or other financial assets should get legal advice before entering into a marriage or before filing for a divorce. The sooner you seek legal advice, the more your lawyer can protect your interests in any future property settlement.
A good of protecting your personal interest are Premarital or prenuptial agreements. Premarital or prenuptial agreements no longer have the negative connotation they previously had. In fact, a premarital agreement can help couples contemplating marriage avoid future conflict by establishing, from the beginning, a shared understanding of what marriage entails. Premarital agreements are also used to identify separate property and prevent separate property from transmuting into marital property. With a premarital agreement, a majority of issues, especially financial issues, may already be resolved should a divorce become inevitable.
