Marital Agreements

Pre-marital or pre-nuptial agreements can serve to protect assets in a marriage.  This is more common in someone’s subsequent marriage than a first-time marriage, so as to protect separate property for children born through a previous relationship.  This is another area of the law that is taboo for many people.

Some think that a pre-martial agreement is simply a divorce decree in the waiting – but this is not true.  It can also show your future spouse how much you love them, regardless of what financial assets they bring to the marriage.  Call us today for a free consultation and question and answer session on the importance of pre-martial and prenuptial agreements.

Although the composition of a prenuptial agreement varies for each party for whom we draft a contract, some of the standard components include:

Disparate Wealth
Assets, including Homes, Property, Stocks & Retirement Funds
Children from a Previous Marriage
Business Interests & Ownership
Disparate Debt
