Why Get A Prenuptial Agreement?

Couples often decide to enter into prenuptial agreements in order to exclude certain assets from the property division process should a divorce occur. A prenuptial agreement can also be used to protect the inheritance rights of children from prior marriages. A properly drawn prenuptial agreement is a legally binding contract that can serve to strengthen a marriage.

But a prenuptial agreement is more than just a piece of paper. It usually lists in detail the property each party has at the time of the marriage. Preparing this list can take some time, and the other party must have a reasonable amount of time to review the proposed agreement. For this reason, you should obtain the advice of a lawyer some weeks or even months before the wedding.

An attorney at our firm can review your situation and recommend the right solution for you. We can draft an agreement designed to achieve your goals, review a proposed agreement and if necessary, negotiate improvements in a proposed agreement.

Postnuptial Agreements

Our family law firm also provides services involving postnuptial agreements. These documents usually serve to protect or divide assets and to memorialize agreements of the parties during the marriage that can be used should the marriage dissolve.

Our attorneys understand the many uses of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, and we can address your needs.
