Prenuptial And Marital Agreements
Beyond the other legal aspects of marriage, spouses can enter into additional agreements intended to protect their rights and future interests. A premarital contract allows both future spouses to commit to such issues as property division, alimony and other financial matters in the event that the relationship were to end. A marital agreement is a similar contract between spouses made during the marriage or at the time of separation. At Bleczinski Kleiman & Klein, LLC, we have experience drafting, modifying and handling disputes involving prenuptial and marital agreements.
Marital Agreements And Your Rights
Marital agreements are important tools to protect the assets, interests and rights of both parties before, during and after marriage. Whether you are considering a prenup, have been asked to sign one, or need a marital contract at the time of separation, an attorney can protect your rights. If you have been asked to sign a contract, it is important that you consult with an attorney who can clearly explain your rights and obligations.
Our firm can explain your options for agreements involving:
- Financial obligations at dissolution
- Property settlement agreements
- Cohabitation agreements
- Nuptial agreements (for parties who do not intend to divorce)
- Postnuptial contracts
- Protection of assets and real estate
- Protection of businesses
Do I Need A Prenuptial Agreement?
While many couples are reluctant to enter prenuptial agreements because they may seem unromantic, they serve a very important purpose in protecting the rights of both parties. A prenuptial agreement may be especially important if you have significant assets, children from a prior relationship, or are entering into a second or third marriage. However, all couples will benefit from the trust generated by openly discussing financial obligations should a relationship ever end.
