Prenuptial agreements are contracts entered into by a couple preparing for marriage.
These agreements address property issues such as income, assets, and liabilities that may arise in the event of divorce or death. The agreements may also provide for greater awards of property to children from previous marriages or to safeguard assets when one spouse brings substantially more resources to the marriage than the other spouse.
It is critical to ensure separate legal representation for each party to these agreements. We represent our clients in drafting these agreements by providing representation during the negotiation of such agreements, fully explaining to clients the legal significance of an agreement and the ramifications of either having or not having an agreement, and providing representation for individuals when disputes arise as to the enforcement of such agreements.
