Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys in Bohemia, NY

When a couple makes the decision to take their relationship to the next level, they often start discussing finances and marriage. Though no one wants to think about the end of a marriage before it even begins, it is important to take steps to protect one's assets. Clients going through a divorce may find themselves battling over issues like alimony and the division of assets. However, a prenuptial agreement can let a budding relationship focus on the important things. The unfortunate stigma of a prenuptial agreement often results in many unprepared couples in the event that they do get divorced down the road. A proactive approach is always best when it comes to such significant matters. If you are interested in knowing more about prenuptial agreements, contact The Law Offices of Susan A. Kassel, PC to discuss your situation with an experienced law firm.

How do I know if my prenuptial agreement is valid?

Prenuptial agreements must satisfy some requirements to be enforceable. Prenuptial agreements are only valid for matters related to finances. Couples are not permitted to include decisions about any future children they may have together. Typically, the prenuptial agreement considers matters of spousal support, division of assets, among other financial matters. To ensure that a prenuptial agreement is valid, it must be:

  • In writing
  • Includes all financial information about both spouses
  • Notarized
  • Fair and just to both spouses
  • Executed before marriage
  • Voluntarily signed by both parties

Why should I have a prenuptial agreement?

An unfortunate reality is that over 50% of marriages end in divorce. Having a prenuptial simply protects one’s property from an uncertain future. It does not predict a negative outcome. Like with most life experiences, it is always better to take a proactive approach than to be left unprepared. A prenuptial agreement can handle a wide range of issues and situations, including:

  • Loyalty and fidelity
  • Inheritance of finances and other assets
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Real estate
  • The appreciation of assets

Can I obtain a prenuptial agreement if I am already married?

Often, couples who are already married ask about what they can do if they fail to execute a prenuptial agreement. If both couples are willing, they may draft a postnuptial agreement. They address the same topics but are simply created at different times.

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...
