Getting married for the second time?by Atty. Jablonski on 02/12/12
If so, consider the benefits of a pre-nuptial agreement to a happy marriage. Especially if you are marrying a person with children from a previous relationship, a pre-nuptial agreement can assist you both to have clear expectations after your marriage vows. Divorce happens because of two main causes, in-laws and money. The agreement you write before marriage will ensure that everyone has the same understanding of financial issues. It will preserve your children's inheritance of your assets, and will spell out the financial conditions in the event of a divorce. The process of forming this agreement with your fiance and an attorney involves each party revealing assets and liabilites to each other. Proceed into the new marriage with your eyes wide open!
