Prenuptial Agreements in NY

Making the decision to take a relationship to the next level is often a very exciting time for a couple. When marriage is in the cards, there is so much excitement going on that it seems impossible to consider the possibility of divorce. That being said, divorce rates are very high and it is important for parties to protect themselves in advance. One of the best ways that an individual can protect themselves in the wake of a marriage is through a prenuptial agreement. Prenuptial agreements are for everyone, not just the very wealthy.

It is important that if you do decide to create a prenuptial agreement, you ensure that it is valid. To create a valid prenuptial agreement in the state of New York, it must meet the following criteria:

  • The agreement must be in writing
  • It must include all financial information about both spouses
  • It must be notarized
  • It must be fair and just to both spouses
  • It must be executed before the marriage
  • It must be voluntarily signed by both parties

Only financial matters can be included in a prenuptial agreement. The factors that may be addressed include:

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

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!

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...
