Helping Couples Prepare A Prenuptial Agreement
Undoubtedly, prenuptial agreements have a stigma of showing your spouse that they are not trustworthy. However, a prenuptial agreement can also be a sign of your commitment.

Bergen County Prenup Lawyers
Prenuptial agreements are used for several purposes. You can even legally declare that all assets, inheritances and businesses that pre-dated the marriage remain the separate property of the owner, not subject to equitable distribution. A prenup can also spell out alimony and other financial arrangements that will take effect after a divorce takes place.
The greatest reason to draft and sign a prenup is to ensure there are no misunderstandings and to avoid divorce litigation if a divorce takes place in the future.
Why Draft And Sign A Prenup?
Some people view their pre-existing assets (prior to marriage) as their own. Some people draft prenups with asset protection in mind. Some people are concerned about splitting their assets because they have gone through divorce before and do not want to get harmed financially. They understand how messy and costly it can get.
Prenuptial agreements have advantages and disadvantages. We will help you understand both, and we will help you make the informed decision about what the right path is for your marriage. Prenups can prevent costly and lengthy litigation regarding division of marital property if your marriage does come to an end.
Marital property often includes pensions, retirement accounts, bank accounts, real estate, businesses and other property that are acquired after the marriage. In some cases, these assets should be protected.
