Pre- And Postnuptial Agreements: Protect Your Assets

Whether you are about to get married or are already married, it may be in your best interest to consider creating a pre- or postnuptial agreement. Even though many view these legal agreements in a negative light, they are in no way intended to undermine your love or create a division between couples. By having one in place, you may actually improve marital happiness and avoid disputes, time, and money, should a divorce occur in the future.

She is able to help protect your assets and best interests as she works with you to formulate a detailed and legally sound document.

Pre- and postnuptial agreements cover a variety of topics, including:

When To Consider A Postnuptial Agreement

A postnuptial agreement, like a prenuptial agreement, spells out how marital assets will be divided if the couple divorces. Many couples who didn’t feel the need for a prenuptial agreement reconsider that choice as circumstances can change dramatically and in unforeseen ways during the course of a marriage. For example, one spouse might end up earning substantially more than the other. Maybe one spouse receives or expects to receive a substantial inheritance and wants to protect it in the even of divorce. Or perhaps the couple started a business and wants to specify what will happen to it in the wake of a divorce.
