The benefits of a prenuptial agreement cannot be overstated. Although many divorces do not end up in court, they can still be extremely costly. Most people overlook the fact that marriage is a communion of property. Deciding who receives what property can be a painstaking process requiring a lot of time and money. Lawyers can charge an average of $200 an hour to solve these problems for you. The minimal time investment of a prenuptial now can save you the potential cost and hassle of a difficult divorce later.
