Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
Marriage is a contract. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements — called marital contracts — simply add or subtract terms to what is the contract called marriage. In the difficult event of a divorce, a marital contract can authoritatively answer contentious questions, avoiding arguments and litigation.
While the subject of marital contracts is a difficult one, our lawyers can address the needs of our clients with not only commitment and skill, but with understanding and sensitivity as well.
It is important to create a fair environment of full disclosure when crafting a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. This is not only because it’s the right thing to do, but also because failing to do so can weaken the document when you need it most.
If either you or your marriage partner bring substantial existing assets or property into the marriage, it may be advisable to make decisions about an uncertain future now. That way, both sides can come to a fair agreement earlier, rather than leaving it to later when anger and acrimony may drive decisions.
