    Prenups aren’t just for divorce

    If you have prenuptial agreement, it is an important component of the financial planning process from the day it is first drafted. If you don’t have one, that is relevant to your financial plan as well.

    I specialize in financial planning for couples with

    • Prenuptial agreements
    • Postnuptial agreements
    • Prior marriages
    • Blended families
    • Other separate financial interests

    It might sound surprising but this is most married
    couples. If you don’t have a prenuptial agreement, your marital and separate property is defined by your state. Whichever situation applies to you, let’s make sure you’re planning appropriately.

    HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS INCLUDE UNCOMFORTABLE CONVERSATIONS

    Couples’ financial interests aren’t always perfectly aligned. That’s OK. Let’s talk openly about setting your partnership up for success.

    Most financial planning training assumes couples will come to us with the same financial goals and that prenups only become relevant upon a divorce, but that isn’t reality.

    Prenuptial agreements are great ways to be completely transparent about finances before marriage. They can also be used to plan for how you’ll manage finances during marriage and what will happen to your assets when a spouse dies.

    You don't have to choose

    between planning for your shared future vision and having your own financial goals.
