lizziegrant:  it’s legal to do it even a day before the wedding, BUT later on should the prenup be used you could use that to your advantage because lawyers/judges dont like such prenups that were done super last minute because of the obvious reasons.

AND NO, usually you never have a say in the prenup initially. one lawyer drafts it, then your lawyer reviews it and sends back edits. then eventually you both agree. it’s not something that’s done together but seperately with your own lawyers.

 

BUT OBVIOUSLY you should have had a conversation about this first AND you should have informally agreed on the terms to the back and forth with the lawyers would be limited.

lizziegrant:  I am curious to know if you were able to work things out and continue with your wedding or what decision did you end up coming to. Waiting to hear from you hoping things worked out in the end.

Does anyone find it odd that this is the only thread she’s started or responded to but hasn’t done anything in days – especially if her wedding is tomorrow?

lizziegrant:  Hey, I had a quick question for you!  I know your wedding is (was) close, so I don’t expect any update anytime soon 🙂

I was wondering if your lawyer suggested a post-nuptial agreement.  I agree that dropping a prenup bomb was ridiculous for your Fiance to do.  there is a lot that goes into it, including an assessment of your own assets and liabilities, which are supposed to be clearly laid out. I was wondering if a post-nup would have given you the time needed to have the legalities done correctly, without pressure.  Or does it depend on the state you live in?

With regards to the part about what you get if widowed, I at first was put off by this as well.  That was until my estate lawyer joined the conversation to make sure that my Fiance would indeed be provided for, but that it would be specific in my will and not in the prenup.  The two lawyers worked together to make sure these were in line with each other.  Point is, you need enough time to do things like meet with lawyers, designate will, etc to mak sure that you and your Fiance are not only on he sameg page with each other, but also with your other legal documents.  Throwing this into the mix right before the wedding is bullcrap.

Same happened with my friend. They decided to sign a prenup agreement befor one week of thrie wedding day. They opt to hire a best lawyer who helped them to do this proceeding fast. They read review(http://www.societe.com/societe/monsieur-bechara-tarabay-343059028.html) and also asked their surroundings for the referrals so that they may hire a best one.
