How do you plan to ask for a prenuptial agreement?

| Oct 16, 2018 | Family Law |

In your mind, asking for a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot is a simple process. However, you also know that your fiance may not agree with your line of thinking.

The way you ask for a prenuptial agreement has a lot to do with what happens next. When you take the right approach, things may go smoothly. However, if you make a mistake along the way, it can cause a lot of harm.

These three tips will put you on the right track:

  • Have an open conversation: You don’t want to create a prenuptial agreement and ask your fiance to sign on the dotted line. Instead, bring the conversation to light, explain your thoughts and have a conversation about anything and everything that the two of you consider important.
  • Talk about your fears: Don’t hide why you want to get a prenuptial agreement. Instead, make it clear to your partner so that they know where you’re coming from.
  • Ask questions and let the other person speak: It’s easy to get on a roll and dominate the conversation, but this will make your partner feel left out. Ask questions, give the other person time to speak and share honest thoughts along the way.

By doing these things, you’ll find it easier to discuss the creation of a prenuptial agreement. It doesn’t mean you won’t run into any issues, but these steps should give you some guidance while putting your mind at ease.
