Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a legally binding contract that can alter, by agreement, the laws that otherwise apply to married couples. Such an agreement may affect many aspects of a married couple’s financial life – including the character and division of income and assets, the division of debts, and what happens if the couple divorces or separates.

Sometimes called an “antenuptial agreement” or “premarital agreement,” the prenuptial agreement is becoming widely used by many marrying couples to help them take control of their married financial lives.

Some people think that prenuptial agreements are only for the wealthy. This is not true, as more and more couples of modest means desire to enter into a binding agreement prior to marriage. For example, a marrying couple with children from previous marriages could enter into a prenuptial agreement to pass on their separate (prior to marriage) property to their own children. Without such an agreement, the surviving spouse could end up with the lion’s share of his or her spouse’s property, leaving little for the children of the deceased’s previous marriage.

It is important that the parties and their attorneys adhere to certain statutory requirements regarding disclosure of financial information to the other spouse. The proposed agreement also must be presented in advance of the marriage ceremony for it to be enforceable.

The Law Offices of Claudia Silverman is here to help you with your prenuptial agreement! Due to the importance of the Agreement, the potential myriad of issues to be discussed and addressed, and the importance of fairness to both parties, I require that each side be represented by separate independent counsel and recommend that you begin the process with me at least three months prior to taking the walk down the aisle.
