Pre & Post Nuptials

 

Pre-Nuptial Agreements
When you decide to marry and have substantial assets, you can protect them through a pre-nuptial agreement. Advantages to an agreement may include:

  1. Determining individual assets and ensuring that they remain separate property after marriage
  2. Establishing financial security for separate property
  3. Preserving assets for children and beneficiaries
  4. Providing for children from a previous relationship
  5. Establishing agreed-upon procedures to resolve changing financial circumstances in the event of a separation or divorce
  6. Avoiding litigation over property division, spousal support and alimony in the event of divorce

Attorney Visco has the knowledge, the skill and the experience to help you draft an agreement or review and modify your future spouses agreement with you. But time is of the essence with pre-nuptial agreements. The closer you are to your wedding day the more critical it is to consult with your attorney.

Post-Nuptial Agreements
Sometimes spouses find it useful to enter into a post-nuptial agreement that considers assets, income and property after you marry. A post-nuptial agreement can be especially effective if you expect to or experience substantial increases in income, property and inheritances during your marriage.

Attorney Visco can tailor your post-nuptial agreement to protect your assets and your interests or counsel you if you are asked to sign a post-nuptial agreement by your spouse.
