PREMARITAL AGREEMENT OVERVIEW, PRO SE PRENUPTIAL FORMS, SELF-HELP PRE-NUPTIAL LEGAL SERVICES
A Premarital Agreement (also called "pre-nuptial" or an "ante-nuptial agreement") is a binding legal contract entered into by and between competent adults who are contemplating marriage. The Premarital Agreement allows the parties to determine their community property rights and financial responsibilities upon consummation of the marriage.
A Premarital Agreement defines the rights of each party prior to marriage. This can be important for one (or both) prospective spouse who has/have accumulated assets they wish to protect prior to marriage. The pre-martial Agreement also allows each party to the Agreement to provide that their assets, or at least a large portion of them, go to their children in the event of their death.
The Premarital Agreement will be enforceable only if signed with the willing consent of both parties to the prospective marriage (i.e. neither party can be under duress, pressure or force from the other party or some outside source), and only after the parties have made full disclosure of each other's financial situation to the other.
If the marriage contemplated by the prospective spouses never occurs, the Premarital Agreement shall have no force or effect. In executing a Premarital Agreement the parties can avoid or alter current community property laws with regards to property already owned by the parties prior to marriage.
While the Premarital Agreement provides that assets or property owned by one of the spouses prior to the marriage remains the property of that spouse upon the dissolution of the marriage (and our Premarital Agreement allows for the full and complete disclosure of such property or assets on easy-to-use schedules), the Agreement provides that any asset or property acquired AFTER the marriage shall be owned by both parties jointly, with the right of survivorship.
Below are some Premarital Agreement products and services examined by the American Legal Review:
With the recent increase in the number of marriages between people who have accumulated substantial assets -- especially those entering second marriages and senior citizen marriages later in life -- a greater need has come about for couples to create a Premarital Agreement. A Premarital Agreement details in advance any and all financial structures should the marriage come to an end, leaving both persons (and the heirs of those persons) protected and secure. Standard Legal makes creating this Premarital Agreement step-by-step simple!
The Premarital Agreement provided with this software also states that debts of one spouse shall not, before marriage, be the responsibility of the other party to the Agreement after the marriage is entered into and that debts of one spouse shall not, after the marriage, be the responsibility of the other party to the Agreement without the other spouse's written Agreement.
If you and your future spouse determine that creating a Premarital Agreement will provide clarity, security and harmony as you move into this new stage of your life, then the legal forms provided within this Standard Legal Software package are for you.

He proposes, she accepts, and the date for marriage is set. The couple sits down to discuss the flower arrangements, the band, and the prenuptial agreement? The very idea makes many people hesitate: still fresh with the glow of romance, is it appropriate to think about the demise of the marriage?
Though they have been stigmatized in popular culture as cynical arrangements and romance-killers, prenuptial agreements have become more and more common in recent years. Indeed, with approximately 1/3 of all first marriages, and nearly ½ of all second and third marriages, ending in divorce, a prenuptial agreement may be seen not only as practical but as necessary. Without such agreements, the state may either grant each spouse one-half of the marital assets (if they live in a community property state ) or divide the assets based on an "equitable distribution" (if they live in a non-community property state). Any non-traditional or specific allocations that you wish to make should be covered by your prenuptial agreement to avoid the standard distributions.
A prenuptial agreement is a private agreement between two parties who are intending to marry that sets forth the distribution of assets (and debts) that will occur in the event of the parties' divorce or death.
