Protecting Yourself Through Prenuptial Agreements

For many couples, a prenuptial agreement is a smart way to protect each partner’s individual property during marriage. The experienced attorneys at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC can provide advice and guidance to individuals who are considering such an agreement. Our attorneys are experienced at drafting agreements to protect our clients’ property.

Agreements Can Address Many Aspects of Marriage

Prenuptial agreements are agreements that outline how property or other aspects of a marriage will be handled in the event of divorce. They are increasing in popularity among couples who see the agreements as a way to protect themselves and their significant assets rather than as a sign their marriage may not be successful.

These agreements can address nearly any aspect of a marriage. A client who owns a house before marriage may want to protect that property. A business owner may want to protect the company from a financial impact due to divorce. Alimony — either waiving alimony or guaranteeing certain support — may be agreed upon. Child-related matters are nearly the only major aspect of marriage that cannot be limited or dictated in a prenuptial agreement.

Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys

Retaining an experienced attorney is an important element in the process of negotiating and executing a prenuptial agreement. Numerous legal requirements must be met to prevent a prenuptial agreement from being deemed unenforceable. Among them, parties need to create an agreement and have it drafted well in advance of their wedding date. There must also be full and fair financial disclosure of income, assets and debts. The attorneys  at Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC have experience advising clients on issues affecting prenuptial agreements and creating prenuptial agreements that are enforceable, as well as meet their individual needs.
