Developing A Prenuptial Agreement You Can Count On

A prenuptial agreement (often referred to as a “premarital agreement” or “prenup”) is a necessary tool for anyone about to get married who wants to ensure that their investments and assets are protected in the case of divorce. Whether you have significant assets or children from a former marriage or you are a young professional, you want to make sure that your rights and financial interests are protected should you ever face a divorce.

If you have been presented with a prenuptial agreement, our they can act in your best interests and review the contract to ensure that your rights and interests are protected.

How A Prenup Can Help You

If you are interested in drafting a prenuptial agreement, our lawyers will take the time to understand your unique circumstances and needs. Having an agreement in place can benefit you in the following ways:

  • A prenuptial agreement can protect specified assets, like real estate, personal property, retirement, business and finances, from being divided with your spouse in the event of a divorce.
  • Income earned during the marriage and assets you purchase with that income can be protected from division with your spouse.
  • Debts incurred by your future spouse can remain their sole responsibility.
  • You can ensure that any claim to a future award of spousal support is waived or limited to set terms.

Whether you want to protect your children in the future, provide certainty in your marriage, shield your financial assets or bolster your estate plan, your prenup can help you achieve your goals for the future. Every prenup should be unique to the marriage it applies to. Our dedicated team can help you craft an agreement that protects everyone’s best interests in your marriage.

Providing The Guidance You Need For Your Prenup

Trust our team to help you understand the benefits that a marital agreement may hold for you.

Failing to have an experienced attorney properly draft and review your prenuptial agreement can impact whether your agreement is enforceable when it matters most – at the time of divorce. Our lawyers focus on preparing enforceable agreements from the start to avoid unwanted surprises later.

If your fiancé(e) has given you a prenuptial agreement to sign before your wedding, then you’ll want to have an experienced family law attorney review the agreement. They can make sure that you understand any rights you may be giving up and what long-term effect it could have on your future.
