Whether It Is A Prenup Or Postnup, Our Attorneys Can Help You
Getting married is a big step. It may be your first, second or third marriage where you and your spouse combine households, families and finances. Some couples overlook a few important issues before diving into a marriage. What if the marriage does not work? How do you ensure asset protection if your marriage fails?
This is when couples should consider creating a prenuptial agreement. Or maybe your marriage has hit a rough patch. This would be a good time for couples to create a postnuptial agreement
Important Reasons To Consider
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can benefit both spouses. A prenuptial agreement gets created before the marriage, and a postnuptial agreement is assembled after the marriage.
Without an agreement in place and divorce looming, you may find yourself having to give up assets you accrued before you were married. Here are some scenarios in which you may consider creating such an agreement:
- You are a business owner and want to protect your company and its assets.
- You are on your second, third or multiple marriages, and you want to ensure that specific assets are bequeathed to your children and beneficiaries, rather than your spouse’s heirs.
- You wish to keep property of sentimental value. Family heirlooms come to mind.
- Your significant other has student loan debt. Should you divorce, you may be on the hook for paying a portion of that.
- Your spouse has addiction issues and has accumulated significant debt.
Our team of attorneys will sit down with you, listen, collaborate and work out a suitable legal arrangement. In many marriage scenarios, a prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement is a common-sense approach to living a long and healthy marriage.
