What’s the value in having a prenuptial or post-marital agreement in Illinois?

Looking at the cost benefit of a prenup, it’s immediately apparent that it’s a good investment for each party. It gives some much needed certainty to the relationship. If this marriage is going to end unsuccessfully, you know by simply pulling out the document what 80% or 90% of the issues are going to look like in a post-divorce setting.

It’s a good reality check for both parties to a marriage, and I almost universally recommend to people that they enter into some kind of a prenup agreement before they actually enter into the marriage. It really can save time, aggravation, and helps keep the hostilities down in an otherwise very contentious setting.
