Louisiana business owners benefit from prenuptial agreements

Unfortunately, a divorce can compromise everything that they have worked so hard to build. Prenuptial agreements can help protect business interests during a divorce and are a smart choice for their owners. 

Can family law issues be contagious?

People in Louisiana generally like to think that they think and act of their own accord and not because of outside influence. While this might be true in some cases, a person's friends and family can have a significant impact on their behavior when it comes to family law. Simply knowing someone who has divorced puts an individual at a higher risk for pursuing the process for themselves. 

Prenuptial agreements help with more than just divorce

Planning the perfect wedding day is perhaps one of the most romantic endeavors that a Louisiana couple can undertake.

Do you really need to read prenuptial agreements before signing?

Using a prenuptial agreement to safeguard assets and protect oneself from debt is a great option for most people in Louisiana. Although prenups may have risen in popularity recently, it is important to remember that they are legal documents that have real-life implications. Those choosing to use prenuptial agreements should be certain that they carefully read and understand everything in the document before signing.

Prenuptial agreements can take uncertainty out of marriage

For newly engaged couples, topics like divorce and pre-existing assets might seem like unromantic topics.

Brendan Fraser's spousal support problem

Sometimes there is no way out of paying alimony to a former spouse. While it certainly is not awarded in every divorce case in Louisiana and elsewhere, there are some instances when spousal support simply cannot be avoided. For the breadwinning spouse, this may be a tough pill to swallow, especially if the amount of support awarded and the duration of support seem unfair or unrealistic to maintain. This seems to be the case for actor Brendan Fraser.

Prenuptial agreements: Are you forgetting something?

So many details go into making a wedding day special. With everything the Louisiana couple needs to remember to do before the big day, it is no wonder that some things may slip through the cracks. That may be okay if you inadvertently sat two warring relatives next to each other at the reception, but when it comes to prenuptial agreements, you may only have one chance to get it right.

Prenuptial agreements: The practical side of wedding plans
