Don't forget to include these important items in a prenup

Getting married is a milestone moment in life, but it should never be treated lightly. Even though marriage is a fun, exciting time, you cannot forget to plan for your future. Not every marriage will go on forever, baked in happiness. That is why it's important to consider a prenuptial agreement. Here are some important items to put in your prenup in New Hampshire.

One of the most important items you shouldn't forget to include in your prenuptial agreement is how to divide debt. This can be debt acquired individually prior to the marriage and debt acquired during the marriage. You will want to explain that debt before marriage remains individual debt and debt during the marriage is joint debt that must be divided equally, unless some other agreement can be made.

Another item that you shouldn't forget to include in the prenup is how spousal support will be handled if you are to get divorced. Spousal support is a common point of contention when it comes to divorce. Figuring out the situation prior to a divorce can save both parties a ton of time and energy.

It's also a good idea to outline how separate and marital property will be divided come divorce. Many couples find themselves arguing over different pieces of property when divorce occurs. Outlining what remains separate property and what will be divided equally as marital property in divorce can make the process easier for all involved.
