Do we still need estate documents if we draft a Prenup?


Yes, even though your prenuptial agreement may affect how your property is distributed it is not in place of an estate plan.  A prenup will determine what is separate property.  Your will or trust will determine where that separate property is distributed. who gets that property when you die. Other things an estate plan will speak to that a prenuptial agreement doesn't is an executor of your estate, guardian for any children, who makes financial and medical decisions on your behalf, any emergency health care issues and any specifics for a funeral or burial instructions. As you are considering future planning we recommend an estate plan for protecting yourself, your spouse, and your family.
