A prenuptial agreement is a voluntary agreement that parties will enter into prior to their marriage. The reason that a party would want to enter into a prenuptial agreement is because they want to protect something. If you have an asset, or a business, or multiple assets, multiple businesses that you want to protect, the best way that you can do that is to enter into an agreement before you are married; which specifically outlines what will happen with those assets or assets that are acquired during the marriage with potential premarital funds in the event of a divorce. So, it’s a protective tool that people can use in order to ensure that they have a forward-facing look at what could potentially happen in the event that they have to go through a divorce.

It limits the issues in terms of dealing with equitable distribution, what can be dealt with a prenuptial agreement on issues of custody or child support because it wouldn’t be fair to the children to predetermine how those issues are resolved within an agreement. But the issues of equitable distribution and potentially child support can absolutely be dealt with and should be dealt with if you have something to protect. That is the benefit. We are absolutely versed in preparing those agreements. We ensure that clients understand the reason that they are doing it and that if it is done correctly and it is done appropriately it really can help them in the future so that they know what to expect.
