In today’s society, Michigan Prenuptial Agreements (also known as Prenups) are becoming more and more common place. Despite popular misconception, there are plenty of reasons to get a prenuptial agreement that are not related to an anticipation of divorce. Michigan Prenuptial Agreements can help give a clear understanding to both spouses regarding financial obligations, individual property and other important matters. Along with giving a clear understanding of financial obligations, Michigan prenups can assist in protecting one spouse from the pre-marital debt of the other spouse.
Marriage is likely the most important decision you will make in your life. You wouldn’t purchase a house or even buy a new car without a contract explaining the transaction. Marriage should be no different.
