Benefits of a prenuptial agreement

Contact Us Today!

When couples are headed towards marriage, of course, the last thing they are thinking about is divorce. However, it is important to keep in mind that divorce does happen quite often so it is important to take steps to protect yourself. One way that you can do so is through a prenuptial agreement. Despite the negative stigmas attached to prenuptial agreements, they actually do have many benefits. It is best to be proactive and protect your assets before getting married so that if a divorce happens down the road, it can be expedited and less tiresome. Some of the aspects of marriage that a prenuptial agreement can address include loyalty and fidelity of both spouses, inheritances of assets, spousal support, real estate, and the appreciation of assets.

In order to make sure a prenuptial agreement is valid, you must ensure a few things are true. These include that the agreement is in writing, includes a full financial disclosure from both spouses, it is notarized, fair to both spouses, signed voluntarily by both parties, and is drafted and executed prior to the marriage. If you do not execute the prenuptial agreement prior to the marriage, it will not be valid. However, you do have the option to create a postnuptial agreement if both spouses agree to it. If you need assistance in a pre or postnuptial agreement, contact us today.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

‐ Dave

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
