Prenuptial Agreements

Many people believe that prenuptial agreements are not romantic and inherently anticipate a divorce. This is not the case, however, as prenuptial agreements serve to protect the interests of two people entering into a legal relationship. There are many situations in which prenuptial agreements are appropriate, including:

  • Unequal wealth between spouses
  • Previous marriage and kids of one or both spouses
  • One or both spouses have business interests
  • One or both spouses expect a large inheritance

When you get married, you never want to plan for the possibility of divorce, but failing to do so in certain situation can be extremely costly. We can discuss whether a prenuptial agreement is right in your situation.

Remarriage Issues

If you’re heading into your second marriage, there can be lingering legal issues. For example, your spousal support may end or your ex-spouse may seek a modification of the child custody or child support order. It is important to address these matters head-on instead of waiting until after your honeymoon. We can evaluate your situation and help anticipate any legal matters.
