Why you may want to keep a divorce out of court

Many people associate divorce with contentious court battles. However, a divorce doesn't have to go down that path. There are strategies that couples ending a marriage can pursue to keep things out of the courts. There are a number of benefits that avoiding litigation can have for divorcing couples and their families. Below we'll point out three major ones.

Ask anyone who has been married for a long time, and they will likely tell you about a difficult time in their marriage. Just because marriage gets hard, doesn't mean it's time to quit.

Are there any drawbacks to signing a prenuptial agreement?

If you are planning to marry in the near future, you are likely not planning on what will happen if your marriage ends at some point. Thinking about death or divorce before you even walk down the aisle may not seem like a romantic prospect, but it can be helpful to think about how you can protect your interests. One way you can do this is by creating a carefully prepared prenuptial agreement.

A prenuptial agreement can allow you to make decisions before you are married about how property division will work in case of a divorce, how money and property will be managed during the marriage, and how assets will be divided when the marriage ends due to death. It can also provide various other benefits and provide you with peace of mind before you get married. However, it is prudent to understand the implications of any financial and legal choices you make, and it is helpful to weigh the benefits and potential drawbacks of drafting a prenuptial agreement.
