Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreements: Are They Necessary?

Many people get married and are caught in the honeymoon stage. While this state of bliss should be enjoyed, it’s important to also think logically and plan for the future. Our firm works with clients throughout New York who are interested in creating prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. We are here to listen to your concerns and come up with a plan that both parties can be comfortable with.

Knowing The Benefits Can Help You Make These Decisions

When it comes to these legal documents, they are virtually the same. The only thing that is different is the time in which they are created. A prenuptial agreement is signed before a marriage becomes official. A postnuptial agreement is created after you are married. The purpose is to protect yourself and your partner, should you ever need it. There are difficult decisions that must be made, and it is often best to make them when you are thinking clearly, instead of out of anger years down the road. While these measures are often associated with potential high-asset divorce situations, they can benefit any couple.

Anything can be listed in these agreements. From spousal support to custody arrangements and listing out assets, you can cover what you think is most important. Our job, as your representation, is to make sure your wishes are clear and concise. We also can examine your situation and discuss anything you might have forgotten to consider. Regardless, these agreements are tailored to you and your specific needs. While it can be a difficult topic to discuss with your partner, it often gives each party peace of mind. You can move forward without the stress of any “what-ifs.”
