Antenuptial Agreements

Antenuptial (prenuptial) agreements are contracts entered into by a couple prior to their marriage. These agreements normally address property issues such as income, assets, and liabilities that may arise in the event of divorce or death. Occasionally such agreements protect the assets of the spouse who brings to the marriage considerably greater assets. Our attorneys assist in drafting such agreements, representing one side or the other during the negotiation of the agreement, and, most importantly, fully explaining to clients the legal significance of an agreement and the ramifications of either having or not having an agreement, and providing representation for individuals when disputes arise as to the enforcement of such agreements.
