While many might assume that a “prenuptial agreement” (also known as a “premarital agreement”) is a contract that only wealthy individuals need to be concerned with, it can also be important for the rest of us. Sometimes the issue is protecting an asset, but sometimes it is protection from liability. Some marrying couples with children from prior marriages find it beneficial to spell out what property goes to which children. Without a “prenup” – and an updated will – in place, your property may not be distributed in the way you intended. In the absence of proper advance planning, the laws of Wisconsin determine what happens to your property upon death or divorce. State law may even have a say in what happens to some of the property you owned before you were married. Be sure your wishes are carried out.
