Pittsburgh Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys
Preparing for a wedding is a joyous, but stressful time. Many couples participate in premarital counseling, as a way of working out issues before they materialize. Another way to work out these issues is to get a prenuptial agreement, also called a prenup or a premarital agreement. While this may seem to put a damper on the joyous mood, the sad reality is that over 50% of first marriages end in divorce. The divorce rate is even higher for subsequent marriages. Planning before a marriage can help to alleviate some of the stresses associated with going through a divorce, should the marriage not work out.

What can't be included in a prenuptial agreement?
