If you are considering marriage and have accumulated a large amount of wealth, and/or assets, it may be in your best interest to consider a prenuptial agreement that can help you retain more of your wealth should a divorce occur.  None of us like to think about our marrying someone winding up in the divorce courts, but it is a simple fact of life that happens all too often.  It can be financially devastating if one has worked long and hard in a business to make it successful only to have a disgruntled spouse deciding they deserve part of the business and wealth you have accrued due to your hard work without any contribution from them.
Prenuptial Agreements versus Heirs
Broaching the subject of a prenuptial agreement with a prospective spouse can be daunting, but it can also be seen from a positive perspective, especially if you establish what each party would receive if a divorce should occur.  In the case of second marriages, where grown children are involved, it can also help alleviate family stress by assuring heirs they will not be left out of a will, or forced to give up assets they previously believed they would inherit in the event of their parent’s death.
Are Prenuptial Agreements Binding in Oklahoma?
Prenuptial agreements in Oklahoma divorce law are normally interpreted as being legally binding agreements that both parties agreed to abide by prior to the marriage, and, therefore, are to be carried out per the document signed by each individual.
Oklahoma family law does not allow for prenuptial agreements to determine custody of minor children, but to primarily cover financial issues such as wealth or assets accrued prior to marriage, credit card, debt, student loans, tax debt, etc.
