Actress Kaley Cuoco cites prenuptial agreement in divorce

Prenuptial agreements have steadily increased in popularity among engaged couples here in Houston and all over the country. No longer just for the very rich or celebrities, prenuptial agreements make sense for many relationships.

Actress Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny on the hit television series "The Big Bang Theory," announced recently that she is getting a divorce from her husband of 20 months. Her petition cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for divorce. In recently court filings it was revealed that, a month prior to their wedding, the two parties signed a prenuptial agreement that described how they would divide their assets in the event of an eventual divorce. The agreement reportedly also provided that Cuoco would make spousal support payments to her ex-husband. If the court finds the agreement to be valid, it will save Cuoco and her soon-to-be ex-husband a lot of time and headaches as they go through the divorce process, because many of the big issues will have been resolved in advance.

Although many celebrity couples have a prenuptial agreement before they are married, these agreements are not just for the rich and famous. A prenuptial agreement is a way to protect a person's assets that they have before they enter a marriage in case a divorce occurs. They can provide information on how assets and debts should be distributed upon a divorce.

An attorney who is skilled in family law can help a couple draft a prenuptial agreement that makes sense for their situation. A prenuptial agreement can be a great way for a couple to discuss their assets and debts and make smart choices regarding the future. Having a prenuptial agreement in place at the time of a divorce can make the divorce go more quickly and smoothly.
