What Is A Prenuptial Agreement?
Sometimes called a prenup or prenup agreement, a prenuptial agreement is basically a contract that is put into place in order to protect an individual’s separate assets when entering into a marriage. This contract protects your assets and ensures that they remain outside the scope of property division in the event of a separation or divorce in the future. It is important to explore the possibility of a prenuptial agreement well in advance of the wedding date to ensure ample time for drafting, review and negotiation of the document.
We represent clients who are seeking the creation of a prenuptial agreement or wishing to negotiate a prenuptial agreement that has been presented to them on behalf of their future spouse.
After The Wedding
In addition to handling the creation of prenuptial agreement documents, our firm can also assist clients in structuring postnuptial agreements. This type of agreement is set forth to accomplish essentially the same goals as a prenup agreement, but the creation takes place after the actual legal marriage has occurred.
