PRE-NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS (Before Marriage)
A prenuptial (or premarital) agreement is “an agreement between prospective spouses made in contemplation of marriage and to be effective upon marriage”. A Prenuptial agreement may deal with a wide variety of issues between prospective spouses including: the rights and obligations of each of the parties in any of the property of either or both of them acquired before the marriage; the rights and obligations of each of the parties in any of the property of either or both of them acquired after the marriage; and the disposition of property upon separation, divorce, or death.
POST-NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS (During Marriage)
A postnuptial agreement is a voluntary marriage contract between spouses that is created after their wedding. Many married couples create postnuptial agreements to help resolve issues in their marriage by removing a source of disagreement over finances, assets, inheritances, children, etc.
REVIEW AND AMEND MARITAL AGREEMENTS
If your prospective spouse has had an agreement drafted, we can review the agreement and discuss the important controlling parts of if with you — in essence interpret the contract for you and make suggestions accordingly. We can also amend a previously signed agreement if your intentions or other important circumstances have changed. It is recommended that you review your agreement every five years or so and make amendments to reflect changes in your income and asset holdings, or intentions.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE
We work in protecting our residents in international marriages, who look forward to marrying foreign brides, from the former Russia, Ukraine, Latin America and Asia. There are also many scams out there relating to foreign marriages or the old term “mail-order brides.” A prenuptial agreement will protect you! Execute a prenuptial agreement with your foreign bride or groom prior to bringing her or him into the United States. This will allow you to focus on them and not your financial affairs.
SMALL BUSINESS PARTNERS OR OWNERS
A Prenuptial Agreement protects a Business. There is a strong trend where small business partners are entering into, and requiring their partners to enter into, prenuptial agreements before the partners get married. This ensures there is no disruption to the business by either (1) the spouse acquiring a financial interest in the business requiring the other partners to buy that interest upon divorce or (2) the spouse gaining an ownership interest in the business and having voting rights in business decisions.
