Establishing Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
There are many misconceptions surrounding prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, the largest of which is that by establishing such a contract, the marriage is bound to end in divorce. While that can happen, it is not always the case. A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can facilitate healthy discussions between spouses and guide people toward making sound decisions about their financial lives.
For more than 40 years, Cobert, Haber & Haber Attorneys at Law has helped family law clients throughout Nassau County, Long Island and New York, draft effective marital agreements. We can talk you through your options, and develop pre- and postnup agreements that are in your best interests.
Who Should Consider A Marital Agreement?
While virtually anyone can benefit from a premarital agreement, it is generally the following groups of people who require our help:
Those with high income
Those who are marrying later in life
Those who are marrying for a second or subsequent time
Those who have significant property and assets
Those who have children from a previous marriage
Pre- and postnuptial agreements come into play in the event of death or divorce. The distribution of property and assets will be dictated by the agreement and help to mitigate any problems that could arise during the distribution.
