Assuming for the moment that the assets are not overly complicated and the two of you are in agreement, then working with a predraft agreement can in fact save you a good deal of money. However, once you believe the two of you have come to an agreement and have a draft that's acceptable to the two of you, I would strongly recommend that you each contact a separate attorney to at least have the document reviewed. I have done this with a number of clients over the years and what the attorney is then paid to do is to review an existing document and comment on whether she/he feels it is complete or needs additional work. If on the other hand one of the two of you have significant assets in excess of your future spouse, then I think you should hire a competent attorney for the original drafting. If you take the time to enter into a prenuptial agreement, you want one that will stand up to the test of time if you're both ever dragged into court. Good luck
