Protect Your Financial Future With A Prenuptial Agreement

Creating a thorough and well-thought-out prenuptial agreement can save you a tremendous amount of time and stress in your married life. To draft such a document, you need the knowledgeable guidance of an experienced team of attorneys. Goldberg Sager & Associates has extensive experience practicing family law.

We understand that creating a prenuptial agreement is a personal matter, and we recognize that there are many valid reasons you may wish to have such a document drafted prior to your marriage. When you choose our Brooklyn, New York, firm, you receive skilled guidance from an experienced lawyer.

What Will A Prenup Do For Me?

These are just a few of the reasons you may want to create a prenuptial agreement:

  • You are wealthier than your partner
  • Your partner has accrued debt
  • You are remarrying
  • You own part of a business
  • You are planning to quit your job to raise your children
  • Protection of your assets for a child from a prior marriage

A prenuptial agreement cannot cover certain issues. Specifically, a prenup cannot contain any provisions regarding child support or child custody, nor can it waive your right to alimony or encourage divorce. What a prenuptial agreement can do is establish the expected contribution of each spouse to the marriage and outline the responsibilities and roles expected of you and your partner. Spouses who wish to focus on building careers can benefit greatly from drafting a concise prenuptial agreement because it will protect their individual assets in the event of a divorce.

Safeguard Your Rights With A Postnuptial Agreement

A postnuptial agreement is created after marriage. Couples often choose postnuptial agreements when circumstances suddenly change shortly after their union.

In some cases, a postnuptial agreement is sought because one party is considering separation or divorce. However, it may also be used to protect your finances. Additionally, a postnuptial agreement offers a detailed plan of your property and assets if your marriage fails.
