Moore Family Law can assist you with drafting, reviewing, and negotiating your ante-nuptial (otherwise known as pre-nuptial) and post-nuptial agreements.
Drafted properly, a pre-nuptial agreement is not only a planning tool for a possible future divorce, but it can lay the groundwork for a successful marriage.
You can protect the legacy that belongs to your existing heirs, while planning for the needs of a new family. To be valid, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements must be substantively fair both when the agreement is entered into and later, when the agreement is enforced.
The agreement must follow certain legal formalities. And the agreement must be accompanied by full disclosure of each parties’ assets and liabilities.
A pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement that does not meet the legal standards described above will not protect you or your heirs. As a result, it is important that you obtain the best possible advice before you enter into an agreement.
While you discuss your pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreement with one of our attorneys, you can discuss other changes needed in your estate plan for your upcoming marriage. We are fully qualified and prepared to assist you with all your estate planning needs, although we do focus on estate planning incident to marriage, separation, and divorce.
