The Value of Premarital and Prenuptial Agreements in Wheaton Illinois

In Illinois, two people who are contemplating marriage can enter into a written agreement that controls how certain financial matters will be handled during the marriage or in the event of a divorce and death of a spouse. Such an agreement may be called a "premarital agreement" or a "prenuptial agreement." These agreements are governed by the Illinois Premarital Agreement Act.

Should You Consider a Premarital Agreement?

Any couple may choose to enter into a premarital agreement, but in some situations it is highly advisable. A few such situations include:

  • Significant premarital assets: If one or both of the parties has significant assets, a premarital agreement should specify what will happen with those assets upon death or divorce.
  • Children from a prior relationship: If either party has children, a premarital agreement can define and protect the rights of a child to a parent's premarital assets in the event of divorce or death.
  • Second and subsequent marriages: Premarital agreements give couples an opportunity to think through the financial aspects of a planned marriage. It can provide peace of mind that each party's financial interests will be protected now and into the future. It gives each person confidence that they can decide their own destiny.
