Prenuptial Agreements: How to Write a Fair and Lasting Contractby Katherine Stoner
Synopses & Reviews
The first book to lead couples step-by-step through the drafting of a prenuptial agreement in any state. Combining Nolo's legal expertise and plain-English writing, Prenuptial Agreements makes a potentially touchy subject easy to deal with while explaining how to create a valid contract. It explains: the basics of prenups, whether a prenup is right for the reader, how to decide what a prenup should include, every state's laws concerning prenups and marital property, how to assemble a draft agreement, how to turn the draft into a binding contract, plus tips on negotiating and communicating. The book also provides worksheets to help couples determine what their prenup should cover and clauses for preparing an agreement customized to suit the reader's needs. All forms areincluded as tear-outs and on CD-ROM.
Book News Annotation:
Stoner is an attorney and mediator in private practices; Irving holds a law degree from U. of California-Berkeley, and edits many Nolo titles. Their practical guide is designed to help couples who are planning to marry to decide whether or not they want a prenup, what terms to include in it, and how to put the terms into a legally binding document—with the assistance of attorneys—which, as the material and financial counterpoint to their wedding vows, supports and reflects the same spirit of partnership with which the couple approaches those vows.
