Financial Responsibilities in Prenuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements usually bring to mind divorce as they usually are put to use when marriages dissolve, but there are other uses for a prenuptial agreement besides determining what will happen if a couple decides to split. Before getting married, many people are unsure of how financial responsibilities will be divided and how important financial decisions will be made. With a prenuptial agreement, a couple can arrange for their financial future by putting their plans in writing.
Whenever two people enter into a legal contract with one another, it is always important to have the counsel of a skilled and knowledgeable attorney. If you and your soon-to-be spouse are creating a prenuptial agreement, contact the Colleyville prenuptial agreement attorneys of Alexander & Associates at 817-756-4040 to discuss how an attorney can help.
Common Financial Responsibilities in Prenuptial Agreements
There are many ways a couple can use a prenuptial agreement to decide important issues in their marriage. Couples may include the following in their prenuptial agreement:
- How income tax returns will be filed, either jointly or separately
- Who is responsible for household bills and how they will be paid
- Having joint or separate bank accounts
- How bank accounts will be managed
- Large purchases such as cars and a house
- Management of savings
- Support of one spouse for the other during college
These items and more may be included in a prenuptial agreement, so long as they are in regards to financial, and not personal, business.
