Prenuptial Agreements

There are many situations where a Pre-Nuptial Agreement or Ante-Nuptial Agreement is appropriate and necessary prior to entering into a marriage. Most commonly, when one or both parties have substantial assets or children from a prior relationship , it is wise to consider how their pre-marital assets will be best protected in the event of the death of one party or in the event of a divorce.

A Pre-Nuptial Agreement is a contract between two individuals who are contemplating marriage. The main purpose of the Pre-Nuptial Agreement is to protect certain assets from being construed as "marital" property subject to equitable distribution by the court in the event of a divorce. Pre-Nuptial Agreements can also provide certain financial safeguards, such as alimony and support, in the event of a divorce. Pre-Nuptial Agreements also provide for the disposition of assets upon the death of either spouse.

It is important that the parties entering into a Pre-Nuptial Agreement are aware of the other's parties assets and that there has been full and fair financial disclosure of assets and income by each party. It is extremely important that each party to a Pre-Nuptial Agreement understands his or her rights and what he or she may otherwise be entitled to under the Divorce Code or Estate laws.
