What Is a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a contract that details what types of property and assets are to remain separate once two individuals are married. Some people tend to think of a prenuptial agreement as an assumption that the marriage is going to fail. This is not the situation. A prenuptial agreement is a way in which you can protect yourself financially should the unforeseen occur. Whether you are retaining monetary assets, personal property, real property or any other assets, our office can ensure that your prenuptial agreement is comprehensive and presented to your soon-to-be spouse in a way that is appropriate and mindful of the upcoming wedding.

In addition to representing clients who need to have a prenuptial agreement created, our firm represents clients who have been presented with a prenuptial agreement to sign by their future spouse. Since these are legally binding contracts, it is often wise to have an attorney on your side who can look over the paperwork to ensure that your best interests are protected now and in the future. If the agreement is unsatisfactory, it may be possible for us to negotiate the terms with your future spouse's legal counsel and craft an agreement that addresses each party's concerns and expectations.

Postnuptial Agreements

Our firm also handles postnuptial agreements. Sometimes referred to as antenuptial agreements, these contracts are the same types of agreements as prenuptial agreements, but are created and signed after the couple has legally been married. While it is best to have marital agreements in place before you are legally married, in some limited circumstances it is possible for us to ensure your asset protection afterward.
