You are choosing a journey of marriage with your partner. The wedding planning: your guest list, food, music are some of the most joyful decisions you get to make, like everything- there are always things that should to be done that may not be as fun, but are always well worth your investment of time.
The financial aspect of choosing to join your lives, is a priority, and a prenuptial agreement, is very important for your financial planning.
The state of New York has fair, honorable judges. Decisions made here are fair and equitable, for the most part, but a judge is only as good as the information he/she has, so if you and your spouse are arguing while splitting up, he/she is getting 2 sides of the same story- with usually very little middle ground- and he/she has to go from there in making a decision based on only your financial documents. Family ties, emotions and other intangibles don’t go into the decision because, well, he doesn’t know you. He doesn’t know that the inheritance from your grandmother is really important to you that it gets passed to your children, or that you really didn’t care that much about the beach house, but you did want to have a say in the apartment you rent out in Midtown. Basically, if you and your partner had discussions about these things- verbal agreements- that is well and good, but it really doesn’t mean much in the court of law.
