It’s always a good idea to have an independent legal adviser review prenuptial agreements before you sign them. Keep in mind that a prenuptial agreement is meant to protect and provide for the wishes of both parties in a marriage, not just the spouse who requested it.
In many instances, the prenup will act as a divorce settlement if the marriage fails, and negotiating effectively for what you’ll need is paramount at this stage.
By requesting a prenuptial agreement, your future spouse is working to create a measure of certainty and security for both of you.
If only makes sense for you to have a trusted advisor of your own review the document and advise you of what you can expect if it comes into play.
That may result in a new round of negotiation so that your interests are better protected, and those negotiations can be friendly and productive.
