People contemplating marriage may have concerns about the potential for divorce, and what a court might do regarding spousal support, and the division of assets and liabilities. Many people contemplating marriage want to have a plan for how assets and liabilities would be divided in the event of death or divorce. Pre-nuptial agreements allow a couple entering marriage to contract for how the division of assets and liabilities and spousal support will be handled if the marriage ends in divorce. If you are seeking security at the beginning of your marriage, or need a proposed premarital agreement reviewed, we can help.
We also offer a collaborative process model for formal agreement drafting. In the collaborative model, both spouses and/or prospective spouses have an initial meeting with an attorney. The attorneys provide their specific view of what the agreement means both legally and conceptually and assist their individual client in having the agreement meet his/her needs while respecting the relationship as a whole. This is just one of the many services that we provide to our clients to assist in solving specific family legal issues.
