Our lawyers go through the client’s needs on the terms of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and advise them on a regularly basis. Our expertise to enforce and defend these agreements in divorce negotiations and at trial gives us important insight into drafting agreements that are cautiously reviewed by each party and that will be examined under law. By taking into consideration each party’s rights and obligations for the marriage before entering into it, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements often help a couple preserve their marriage while protecting certain individual assets. We work closely with them to reassure their personal needs and shared goals are respected in drafting these agreements. We also do our best to help clients make their pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement in advance, with ample time to finalize these agreements before their wedding takes place.
In addition to pre-nuptial agreements, our lawyers are well versed in post-nuptial agreements, which are executed after the wedding has taken place, but before either party separates, divorces, leaves or dies. The content of these agreements closely mirrors that of pre-nuptial agreements. They allow couples to revise property rights or titles, which can lead to major tax complications.
