Just as engaged couples create a prenuptial agreement before they marry, business owners should do the same when creating buy-sell documents. By drafting a contract soon after establishing a business, partners take advantage of their high spirits and plan for misfortune. Waiting to create an agreement may jeopardize the business's success and stability. Another reason to create the agreement soon after setting up the business is so the contract always meets the owners' most-current needs. Over time, partners may need to adjust the document to account for impending marriage or divorce or declining health.
