If you've been married a decade and now are facing divorce, you may wonder how you will financially move forward. Perhaps, you've been a stay-at-home mom for the last seven years, spending your time raising your children. You know you won't be able to support yourself after your divorce and hope you will qualify for spousal support.
Signing a prenuptial agreement may not feel like the most romantic activity to do before your marriage, but it can be the right choice for many couples. It can help future spouses get on the same page about their present and future. If the marriage ultimately ends in divorce, a premarital agreement can even protect the spouses from making unreasonable decisions out of anger.
