While the glow of romance can seem eternal, many couples choose to err on the side of caution by drafting a prenuptial agreement before they marry in order to protect their assets, interests, or children from a prior marriage in the event of separation or divorce.
At Daley Zucker our family lawyers can help you:
- Draft a legally binding agreement that clearly outlines your wishes
- Understand or modify a prenuptial agreement drafted by your future spouse’s attorney before you sign on the dotted line
- Determine whether your existing agreement can be challenged or invalidated
Drafting Prenuptial Agreements
A well-drafted prenuptial agreement outlines each party’s rights and entitlements in the event of divorce or death. At Daley Zucker, we understand that every couple has different concerns. That’s why your prenuptial agreement should be customized for your needs. We also take great care to draft your agreement properly to ensure it cannot be successfully challenged and set aside by the court.
Understanding Your Prenuptial Agreement
Before you sign a prenuptial agreement, it’s important to really understand the consequences the agreement may have for you. You probably have many questions. We can help you sort through the ‘what if’ scenarios and offer advice and input to ensure your rights are protected.
Challenging or Invalidating Existing Agreements
Like any other contract, prenuptial agreements are enforceable and will usually be honored by a Court unless one party can present clear and convincing evidence of fraud, misrepresentation, duress, or if there was a lack of financial disclosure. If you wish to challenge the validity of a prenuptial agreement, we can help you analyze your agreement and, if appropriate, build your case.
Whether you’re considering drafting a prenuptial agreement to protect your assets, entering into an agreement presented by your future spouse, or wish to challenge an existing agreement, it’s important to seek legal counsel to protect your own interests. Let us help you make the process easier!
