The Importance Of 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. In addition to protections in a potential divorce, a properly drawn agreement is a legally binding contract that can serve to strengthen a marriage.
Prenuptial agreements usually list in detail the property each party has at the time of the marriage. 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 weeks or 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.
Our family law firm also provides services involving postnuptial agreements. These documents 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.
