Frequently people say they are going to prepare their own premarital agreement or they are going to get a form off of one of the Internet services and prepare a premarital agreement. This is probably the most foolish thing a person can do. This person runs the risk of preparing an agreement that does not accomplish his or her objectives. Furthermore, the probability of a successful challenge to a premarital agreement goes up dramatically when people try to do it themselves.
Frequently when people do their own premarital agreements, upon death or divorce, the cost to untangle the mess that they create frequently far exceeds the cost of having a properly prepared premarital agreement.
