Get a Prenup. Save your gold.

Published in Blog

A prenup can be worth a pound of gold or more. Alimony is alive and well in Michigan and it can be expensive. It hurts rich men, poor men, young men and old men. In some cases it worse for poor men than for rich men because despite the law requiring that a man have the ability to pay it, judges often require men of modest means to support their ex-wives. The best way to avoid alimony, a prenup. As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Prenups are not very expensive and they are a lot cheaper than alimony. Protect your gold.
