Pre & Post Nuptial Agreements

The financial uncertainties associated with marriage and divorce can be substantial, and while everyone hopes for the very best, a prenuptial agreement may be appropriate.

The purpose of a prenuptial agreement is to decide before marriage how the parties assets and incomes will be addressed in the event the marriage doesn’t work out.

Among other things, a prenuptial agreement is meant to eliminate, or at least reduce, the possibility of a prolonged and expensive divorce.

Much like a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement is for couples who are already married. The parties can decide how their assets and incomes will be addressed in the event the marriage fails.

Michael’s approach to these agreements is the result of decades of legal experience. He meets with one of the parties to review their goals and the incomes and assets of both parties, and to obtain and review any necessary documents. Michael then prepares a draft prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.

The other party is then given an opportunity to have the proposed prenuptial or postnuptial agreement reviewed by his or her own independent attorney.

The process is completed when both parties are satisfied with the agreement and have executed it. Throughout the process, Michael makes himself available to answer questions and provide advice and counsel.

His experience, counsel, and advice combine to make this experience as pain free as possible, with no questions or issues left unaddressed.
