Marriage is full of promise for the future. Rarely are people thinking about financial issues and what happens if the marriage ends in divorce. A prenuptial agreement, if drafted properly, can protect each of the spouse's rights and avoid much confusion and tension. If you are thinking about entering a prenuptial agreement or your intended spouse has informed you that they are having a prenuptial agreement prepared, you need an experienced prenuptial agreement attorney who can ensure that your rights and wishes are well represented.

Often the idea of having a prenuptial agreement is distasteful. Most people getting married are in love and feel that entering into a prenuptial agreement means that there is no trust. In reality, discussing each party's financial and economic wishes often builds more trust between the two parties. It can also eliminate much of the confusion or tension that occurs in the event of a divorce or legal separation.

A prenuptial agreement can clearly define how marital and separate property and possessions will be divided if the marriage ends as a result of divorce or death. Prenuptial agreements can also be used to agree upon other family obligations such as:

  • Ownership and the right to pensions and retirement funds
  • Protecting estate rights for children
  • Protection of appreciation of assets during the marriage
  • The ownership of real property, bank accounts and businesses owned by either or both spouses together
  • Alimony or maintenance

New York has strict rules regarding prenuptial agreements which must be followed in order for the agreement to be enforceable. If you are contemplating entering into a prenuptial agreement or if you have either been given a prenuptial agreement to review by your intended spouse, or they have informed you of their intent to have one drafted, our firm can help.
