The law firm I work for mostly handles divorce cases but we also do prenuptial agreements. We like to be a one stop shop (kidding, but not really because it has happened). What most people don't realize is that you probably don't need a prenup.
I can usually tell right off that bat if someone doesn't need a prenup.
"Yes hi, I need a prenup because I want to protect my pog collection after I get married."
No you do not need a prenup for you stupid collection or your stereo or your truck that is ten years old. Since I'm not an attorney I can't and don't tell them that they don't need a prenup, I pass the call along to one of the attorneys and let them tell them.
The other call we get is the person who did their prenup online and now want an attorney to look it over. This is like trying to give yourself stitches and then going to a doctor and asking them if you did a good job. No, that shit is going to get infected because you didn't know what you were doing! Do not use online legal software. Go to a professional to draft a prenup. Lawyers go to school for years to learn how to do it properly.
Then there's the person who complains about the cost. "Well I can't afford that." If you can't afford an attorney for a prenup you probably don't need a prenup.
This is not legal advice this is just common sense. Prenups are not for everyone or everyone would have them. Also no one is going to try to take your pog collection, the 90s are over!
*I'm kidding about the pog collection, that's just the first thing that popped into my head when thinking about collections. Don't ask.....
