Prenuptial And Marital Agreements Can Benefit Your Relationship
In Wisconsin, all property belonging to a husband or a wife is presumed to be marital property and with few exceptions the law presumes that each spouse has a present and undivided one-half interest in each item of marital property. Creating a prenuptial or marital property agreement not only protects your best interests, these types of documents can help you and your loved one with transparent communication to strengthen your relationship.
Prenuptial / Marital Property Agreements Reclassify Property
For a variety of reasons, individuals prior to marriage or even married couples wish to contract with one another to reclassify certain property as individual property. This is done for both estate planning purposes and purposes of protecting property in the event of divorce.
Document Preparation Is Critical
If a couple wishes to classify some or all of their property as individual property, it is important to have a lawyer assist with drafting the necessary prenuptial or marital property agreement to make sure the document does what is intended and that the agreement is entered into with a full understanding of the specific terms of agreement.
