Prenuptial agreement to second marriages
To Whom It May Concern:
I am planning on getting married in the near future. My fiance and I have both been married before. I want a prenuptial agreement, as does he, because during his first divorce he lost a business and filed bankruptcy due to back-taxes. There are several sites that offer forms to write a prenup, however once we write it, sign it and notarize it - who needs a copy and is a lawyers signiture required. We would rather not go throught an attorney and we want to take the proper steps. Also will this have any effect on my writing a WILL in the future? Any advice is appreciated.

Re: Prenuptial agreement to second marriages
Many of these "forms" are inaccurate or are not applicable in Louisiana. You want to protect thousands of dollars in assets virtually for free.
There might be "do it yourself dentistry" on the internet, but I will advise against that also.
A prenuptual agrrement is not always expensive. In human costs a poorly drafted legal document is very expensive. Consult an attorney.
