Careful Planning Before Marriage Gives Couples More Of A Say
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are important tools that allow couples to define specific financial issues involved in a marriage. While some people have reservations about prenuptial agreements, they allow couples to creatively determine aspects of their marriage rather than being constrained by rigid statutory guidelines.
While prenuptial agreements are a powerful tool for determining the financial arrangements of a marriage and divorce, including property division in high net worth divorce situations, they can present complicated issues that require the assistance of attorneys with experience and expertise. If you are considering a prenuptial agreement, it is important to work with an experienced legal team that can create a legally effective agreement to protect you and your interests.
Why A Prenup Might Make Sense For You
At Fischler, Friedman, & Bennett, P.A., we have extensive experience drafting, as well as litigating issues related to prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. This work has given us a comprehensive knowledge of the most complex technical aspects of these agreements.
When these agreements are ambiguously or otherwise unclearly documented, the outcome can be catastrophic if any question or doubt arises. Commingling assets, including bank accounts and property, can present ambiguous issues in light of ever-changing statutes for which improperly documented agreements may not account.
While one missing word or technical error can completely change the meaning in a prenuptial agreement and expose you to serious financial risks, our lawyers can draft these agreements in a virtually airtight manner, free from any ambiguity, that will be effective in court if needed. Our lawyers are prepared to help you to understand all issues and, if necessary, represent your interests in court.
