Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements Can Prevent Major Legal Headaches

Creating a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is one of the best ways to avoid a future marital dispute. Whether you are considering marriage and need a legal agreement that outlines the personal assets you own before you get married or you want to establish an agreement regarding equitable distribution of shared martial property or address potential support matters, our Westchester County prenuptial agreement lawyers can assist you.

How A Prenuptial Or Postnuptial Agreement Can Help You

Establishing a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement does not mean that you and your future spouse don't trust each other or that you are preparing for failure. Instead, it helps put your mind at ease by protecting your children of a prior marriage in the event of divorce or in the event something should happen to you. It will also establish a clear understanding that strikes the right balance to address you and your fiancé or spouses respective financial circumstances, allowing you to focus on your marriage.

Either type of agreement will cover all of your concerns, including finances, asset protection, and the needs of your children. And either type of agreement will protect you in the case of divorce or death.
