Westchester County Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

One of the most common feelings for people who are contemplating divorce is confusion. What should I do first? What will happen with our assets? How will I pay the mortgage? While these are all valid concerns, there is a way to head them off before they ever occur: through the use of a prenuptial agreement.

As the name implies, a "prenup" is a document agreed upon by both parties prior to a marriage that spells out what happens if a couple gets divorced. Oftentimes, the document is used to protect assets acquired before marriage, a business owned by one of the parties or some other important aspect of a couple's estate.

Because we are experienced family lawyers, we have handled many prenups for New York couples. We know that a good prenuptial agreement can avoid a lot of headaches down the road.

At first glance, it might seem to people that a prenuptial agreement is a precursor to divorce. However, this simply isn't true. In the event of a divorce, it can make the process considerably smoother if the details of a divorce settlement are agreed upon ahead of time.

While these arrangements are frequently worked out before a couple is married, they can also be drawn up after the wedding. In this case, they are referred to as postnuptial agreements, but the concept is the same.
