New book on prenup mediation

Attorney Laurie Israel has practiced law for 30 years. She started as a tax lawyer, then went into general practice and concentrated on family law and estate planning. About 10 years ago, she published an online article entitled "Ten Things I Hate About Prenuptial Agreements." The piece went viral on the internet because an attorney hadn't written an article like that before.

When you create a prenuptial agreement, make sure it's strong

In a divorce, your partner and their attorney will almost certainly fight for as much property, money and other assets as possible. If you are not careful, they could succeed, leaving you financially devastated. One of the best ways to prevent this scenario is by signing a prenuptial agreement.

The long and strange history of prenuptial agreements

If you are getting married, you have probably thought about whether to get a prenuptial agreement. Many people dislike the idea of prenups because they seem like unromantic contracts that anticipate a divorce. This concept is actually a very new, modern take on prenuptial agreements. Marital contracts, or what we now know as prenuptial agreements, are vital documents that have in fact been around for several centuries.

Why are more millenials getting prenuptial agreements?

A recent survey shows that prenuptial agreements are more popular than ever for an unexpected demographic—millenials. The survey was conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, which polled a swath of its member attorneys. According to the poll, over 50 percent of attorneys have seen an increase in millennial clients who request prenups before their marriages.

New Year? New marriage? New prenup!

The New Year can be a fresh start on life, and a second marriage can be a fresh start on love. Couples who are about to enter a second marriage often wish to create the sense of romance that their first marriages lacked. To that extent, they may forego a prenuptial agreement—but this is a huge mistake.

The 3 reasons why every couple should have a prenuptial agreement

You and your fiancé are deeply in love, and ready to tie the knot. The last thing you want to think about is a divorce. After all, divorce is for other couples-- couples who aren’t as in love as you and your partner. Isn’t it? 

Is an annulment right for you?

Whirlwind romances don’t occur exclusively in movies. Sometimes there’s a spark when people meet online or while on vacation. The spark turns into love and evolves into a marriage proposal. After vows are exchanged, something may not feel right and it feels like a mistake has been made.
