Can I protect my assets without a prenup?
Need Professional Help? Talk to a Lawyer.
I am planning to get married in three months to a person I love and trust a great deal. However, I bring into the marriage a house, 401(k) funds, and several other assets, while he owns very little. What is the best way to protect myself? I don't believe in starting a marriage with a legal document that talks about divorce, so I don't want to do a prenup. But how can I legally document what is mine prior to the marriage date? And what should I do to protect my equity in the house I have today if we decide to sell it and buy one jointly?
