Prenuptial agreements can be viewed as a negative act before marriage. However, in some circumstances, they should be a vital consideration. Signing the agreement does not mean that you will get a divorce in the future. It is simply insurance, should circumstances change. A prenuptial agreement can protect one or both spouses.

Often times couples find the process of creating a prenuptial agreement to be constructive, doing so involves openly discussing issues of trust and finances. The agreement forces them to take these matters seriously and arrive at an agreed-upon conclusion before the marriage commences.
Nobody knows what the future may bring. For some couples, it is wise to have a legal agreement in place.
We also assist married couples who may be forming postnuptial agreements.
Most people are familiar with prenuptial agreements. The postnuptial agreement is not as widely known. A postnuptial agreement is very similar to a prenuptial agreement, with the exception that it is an agreement entered into by a couple after a marriage begins. A postnuptial agreement can provide many of the same protections as a prenuptial agreement. Parties entering into a postnuptial agreement normally want to clarify their rights and obligations in the event of a divorce. Property division and spousal support details can be outlined and agreed upon in the agreement, etc.
