Include more than physical assets in your prenuptial agreement

Drafting a prenuptial agreement is a step that many California couples take in order to ensure the full protection of their financial interests in case of a divorce. However, it is possible to custom tailor these agreements to your individual needs and objectives. You can include provisions for not only your physical assets, but your digital assets as well.

People often fail to include digital assets in their prenuptial agreements, but there are many benefits to including intangible property. Many people preparing to marry fail to consider how much of their lives are stored online and how many of their assets are digital. It can be beneficial to consider these things as you are preparing your agreement, as this can help you avoid many complications in the event of a divorce.

Protecting your online interests

No couple assumes their marriage will end when they get married, yet there are significant benefits to drafting a prenuptial agreement. There are also specific steps you can take to protect yourself and your online and digital assets. Some things to consider as you are drafting your prenuptial agreement include the following:

  • Keeping online accounts separate can make it easier to protect your information and assets. You can even include provisions for this in your prenuptial agreement.
  • When taking inventory of the digital assets that you may want to mention in your prenuptial agreement, you may consider the benefits of seeking an appropriate valuation of this type of property.
  • Agreeing to make copies and share all digital assets that are free could be a smart way to protect your interests.

If you are considering the benefits of a prenuptial agreement, you may find it beneficial to seek guidance regarding what you should include in yours. These agreements are unique to your needs and your objectives, and you have the right to draft yours in a way that is beneficial for your individual situation.

Protecting your interests starts today

Before you walk down the aisle, you may consider the steps you can take to protect your future financial interests. A prenuptial agreement, when drafted correctly, can give you peace of mind regarding your property and money in case the marriage ends unexpectedly.

Drafting a prenuptial agreement is an important legal step, and you would be wise to seek a complete evaluation of your case before moving forward with this agreement.
