PUT PEN TO PAPER

Please don't learn the hard way when dealing with contractors who do work on your home. If you make a change to the original contract have them put it on paper and sign it.

Oral modifications of a contract will not hold up in court and you will be left without the work you expected. Most of the contracts that people sign will have a clause in them, if they are drafted properly, that only modifications that are in writing will suffice and not verbal.

Put it in writing and have them sign it!

CONSULT YOUR OWN COUNSEL

I am a big advocate for pre-nuptial agreements because I think it is important to thing of the end prior to the beginning. If you are faced with the notion of signing an agreement you should consult your own legal counsel.

Not only do pre-nuptial agreements have consequences upon divorce but they also have consequences upon death of either party. Either spouse can waive their rights to take under wills or trusts or to take under Michigan Intestate law.

Save yourself problems down the line and take the agreement to a lawyer and ask them to answer all of your questions.
