How important is it to consult with a lawyer about a prenuptial agreement?
Of the utmost importance
Can it be done without such a consultation?
Dont even think about it.
There are some sorts of prenuptial agreements which are absolutely NOT ENFORCEABLE unless both the parties consulted attorneys. (That's attorneyS, NOT both parties going to the SAME attorney)
It's NEVER a GOOD idea to prepare or sign a prenuptial agreement without speaking to an attorney.
It is essential to consult with a lawyer before entering into a prenuptial agreement, at least if you want it to be enforceable. If you are the party who has "nothing to lose," then it's not so much of an urgency.
