After getting marriage license I wanted to get a prenup drawn up which I did but no lawyers were involved the Witnesses were there we both in agreement and prenup wife notarized. Just want to be sure that my prenup is legal not having lawyers involved.
That's an interesting question because the main reason for a prenuptial agreement is to protect assets. If you have assets worth protecting and you are not already married, I would advise you to spend a few hundred dollars to make sure your assets are protected. It is not likely that you have covered all the areas that should be covered by a prenuptial agreement if you are not a lawyer. A prenuptial agreement to protect assets is not even something I would advise for a general practitioner type lawyer. You need someone concentrating in matrimonial law, family law or estate planning. I would recommend you at least have a lawyer review it if it is not too late. Your interests may not be fully protected and you may not even have an enforceable agreement. I wish you the best.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
