premarital Agreements

Grand Rapids, Michigan, Premarital Agreement Attorney

Although people planning to marry do not like to think about the possibility of divorce, a premarital agreement serves as a great way to protect the assets you have accumulated prior to marriage. Premarital agreements are especially helpful for couples who bring either children or substantial assets into a second marriage. To find out whether a premarital agreement is right for you, contact the Law Offices of Lisa Hagenauer to talk about your legal needs with a knowledgeable, responsive attorney.

Do I need a premarital agreement?

A prenup is a great asset protection and estate planning tool. A prenup can:

  • Protect assets that you have acquired before your marriage
  • Preserve inheritance rights for children from a previous marriage
  • Protect an anticipated inheritance or trust fund
  • Preserve a corporation or family business
  • Determine how marital property will be divided in a divorce
  • Determine what a spouse will inherit in the event of the other spouse's death
  • Address maintenance (sometimes referred to as "alimony") issues
