Pre- and Post Nuptial Agreements
A pre-nuptial agreement is an agreement between two people prior to their marriage which typically outlines the property that each person owns, as well as their debts. The agreement specifies the property rights of each person in the event of a divorce. A post-nuptial agreement is the same but is made after a couple is married.
A pre- or post-nuptial agreement is prevention against a possibly contested and heavily litigated matrimonial matter that could happen in the future. The attorneys at Donnellan Law, PLLC, can help you determine if you need this type of agreement and guide you through the process.
A pre- or post-nuptial agreement is highly recommended in any of these circumstances:
- You own a business or are a member of a closely held corporation.
- You have or plan on having intellectual property rights.
- You have significant assets.
- You have children from a prior relationship and wish to preserve their inheritance.
A pre- or post-nuptial agreement is carefully tailored to suit your specific needs. The attorneys at Donnellan Law, PLLC are prepared to explain your rights regarding your assets and draft an agreement to best protect you and your assets in the event of a divorce.
