A prenuptial agreement is a legal document that lists each person’s assets and debts prior to the marriage. These documents also specify the property rights of each person if the marriage ends in divorce. Some couples choose to set parameters for spousal support and alimony as well.
Each person needs his or her own lawyer when a prenuptial agreement is drafted. In addition, there must be full and total disclosure of all financial information for the agreement to be enforceable.

How Can Marital Agreements Work For You?
Prenuptial agreements can be useful for all couples, but they are especially valuable for people with complex assets. They are also helpful when a marriage creates a blended family with children from different marriages. Dividing assets in these situations can be challenging when there is no marital agreement.
Postnuptial agreements are very similar to prenuptial agreements, but they are created after the couple is married.
If you are considering separating from your spouse, we can draft a separation agreement to define the terms the separation and what each party’s rights will be thereafter regarding child issues, equitable distribution and support.
If you and your spouse have separated or were considering separating, but you want to try to reconcile, we can draft a reconciliation agreement to put into place the terms of the reconciliation, protecting both parties in the event things do not work out.
Once you and your wife have separated and you are in need of an agreement to resolve the issues without litigation, we can assist you in negotiating a settlement agreement. You can use this to resolve all the issues in a fair and equitable manner, again avoiding expensive litigation.
