Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement
Prenuptial agreements tend to have a bad reputation as they are not considered to be the most romantic way to kick off a marriage. In reality, this is an inaccurate perception and attaining a prenup is actually extremely beneficial and smart. A prenuptial agreement is a written contract created by two people before they are married. At Carlson & Work, our family law attorneys are available to assist a couple in drafting a proper prenuptial agreement.

- The property that each person owns as well as their debts.
