Exploring the benefits of a prenuptial agreement

Connecticut couples may be interested in an article detailing some of the benefits that having a prenuptial agreement can bring. The documents have the ability to address the terms of asset division or estate distribution if a divorce occurs or if one member of a couple passes away.

Michael Moore divorce case

Michael Moore, the Oscar-winning director, is filing for divorce from his wife of 23 years, Kathleen Glynn. Moore has decided to bring some big Hollywood names to help his case, with film agent Ari Emanuel and literary agent Mort Janklow listed among the filmmaker's witnesses. Moore's films and books have been favorites of Connecticut readers for years.

Dealing with divorce

For Connecticut couples whose marriages are breaking down, it may be unpleasant to think about the divorce process. However, developing a good understanding of the way divorce works is key if a person is going to move smoothly through the process. Each person's divorce will undoubtedly be different, but most divorces share some common procedures. It's easy to think divorce is something that will be over and done with quickly, but it actually takes a significant amount of time. Almost all divorces share the step of property division. This includes property that the couple acquired after marriage, but it usually excludes gifts and inheritances. Even if one or both members of the couple has a prenup, property may still be considered for division, depending on the circumstances of the marriage.
