You’ve got the ring. You’ve said “Yes!” to the dress (or dresses). He’s picked out a tux. Food. Check. Flowers. Check. Venue. Check. Ceremony. Check. The only thing you are missing is…a lawyer. Come again? That’s right: as you plan your wedding – the happiest, most memorable day of your life – you might want to also consider: who is your legal representation?
Getting married is a big “life event” that often leads to several other “life events” such as: buying a house, starting or consolidating a family business, not to mention the thoughts and considerations that go along with estate planning for the newly married couple. Additionally, there are sometimes considerations on the front end of any union, such as premarital documents. A couple may want to consider how they are dealing with certain assets that each is bringing into the marriage.
