Prenup paves the way for smooth divorce in Cuoco case

Many Massachusetts residents may argue that a prenuptial agreement, or a prenup, is not necessarily the most romantic gesture. However, few would argue that signing a prenuptial agree is not a prudent move. The divorce rate in America is sky high. Thousands and thousands of couples get divorced every year. Signing a prenuptial agreement can help ensure that should a divorce occur in the future, the couple has already paved the way for a smooth and relative pain-free proceeding.

Celebrity Kaley Cuoco is probably happy that she and her husband signed a prenuptial agreement. According to reports, the Big Bang Theory star recently separated from her husband, Ryan Sweeting. The two cited irreconcilable differences. They had been married since 2013.

Reports say that the divorce proceedings should go quickly in the Cuoco case. Property division and spousal support matters were already decided on in the prenuptial agreement. The couple had drafted and signed the agreement a month before their wedding.

It is often a smart move to sign a prenuptial agreement before a marriage. Nonetheless, for some couples, it may be too late for a prenup. For these couples, it may be possible to draft a postnuptial agreement after the marriage has happened. Both documents help ensure that should a divorce occur, everything will proceed in a way that aligns with the couple's wishes.

Drafting a prenuptial agreement is not always an easy task. There are many nuances that go into such documents. Family law attorneys are available to guide couples with this process. With the aid of legal expertise, couples can rest easy knowing that their interests are protected and that should a divorce occur, it will be as pain-free as it can possible be.
