Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys in Middlesex County

Helping Couples Plan in East Brunswick, Monmouth, Somerset & Union Counties

While marriage is usually the happiest day in one’s life, the reality is that no one has the ability to predict the future and whether a marriage will last. A prenuptial agreement is a tool that can help couples protect their futures as they head into marriage and is a way to determine the rights of each party in advance. Significantly, a prenuptial agreement can save couples thousands of dollars in litigation should the marriage fail as it’s always easier to agree when you are in love versus when the marriage is over

A prenuptial agreement will allow parties to disclose their assets prior to their wedding and take steps to effectively safeguard them should divorce be necessary in the future. If the marriage ultimately ends in a separation or divorce, your premarital assets would normally be protected from equitable distribution so long as they were not mingled together. Even still, disputes can often break out over property division. Having a premarital agreement that designates who gets what ahead of time will alleviate some of the stress during this process.

The East Brunswick prenuptial agreement lawyers at Rozin | Golinder Law can help you plan for your marriage by establishing an effective agreement should the same not work out as planned. We are experienced in drafting and negotiating these agreements so that our clients are protected in case of divorce. Most importantly we pride ourselves on being very honest and explaining things upfront with all of our clients.

The Importance of Prenuptial Agreements

Not only do 50 percent of marriages end in divorce, around 60 percent of people in their second marriages will go through divorce again. By entering into a prenuptial agreement with your future spouse, you can shield your assets and allow for a greater level of comfort if anything should happen.

Requirements For A New Jersey Prenuptial Agreement

In Order for your New Jersey Prenuptial Agreement to be valid the following requirements must be met:

  1. The agreement must be in writing;
  2. It must be signed prior to the marriage;
  3. Both parties must fully disclose all of their assets and liabilities and a statement of assets and liabilities must be attached for each party;
  4. The agreement must be fair to both parties and cannot be completely one sided;
  5. Both parties should be represented by an attorney; and
  6. Both parties should sign in front of a notary.

Assets You Can Protect

A prenuptial agreement can help you protect the following:

  • Real estate
  • Business assets
  • Foreign assets
  • Inheritance
  • Investments
  • May limit your exposure to alimony; and will determine how assets will be divided.

It should be noted that child custody and visitation cannot be contracted in prenuptial agreements as custody always has the potential to be modified based on the best interests of the child.

Real Reviews From Previous Clients

  • Short, Sweet and Thankful

    “All I have to say is this, Elizabeth is an exceptional Lawyer, and in the field of Law, I can tell you she is a game-changer, I came to her in dire need to help me obtain my Daughter through emergency circumstances, the timing was urgent, and in a matter of hours she was able to accomplish custody of my daughter, she had only 2 hours to prepare for our hearing. That's all she needed, as sharp as she is, surprised it took her that long, Ha. This is a person that reminded me that there is a lot of good in this world. If anyone were to read this, I want to assure you that she will exhaust every opportunity and resource to get the job done accordingly. I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend her to anyone in need of Professional. Job Well Done Elizabeth, Zoë and I are very thankful.”

  • Exceptional Attorney

    “Elizabeth has been representing our family for over a year now in a very sad and complicated custody case that involves the protection of my step daugter. It was a case where the original custody was out of another state. From the day we retained her she's been a godsend. Her motions and arguments reflect the personal interest she takes in every client. She's direct, honest, and very realistic. She's taken us through the temporary emergency custody process...the permanent custody process...and now the child support and contested custody process. She was instrumental in getting the jurisdiction of the child's custody granted to NJ. She has always prepared us for the worst yet we walked out with what we needed to happen each and every time. She's still fighting for this child through this last phase. Elizabeth is a true child advocate it's been apparent since day one. You never know what judges are going to decide but Elizabeth knows the laws, she knows the court room game, she develops a strategy and in my family's eyes she's a top notch attorney. I know one day soon she will climb to the ranks of one of the most powerful family attorneys in this state if she isn't alreay there. She's aggressive, smart, honest and a true talent at what she does.”

  • Successful Relocation

    “Elizabeth Rozin-Golinder successfully represented my wife on a couple of occasions. Once was for child custody and the most recent was for child relocation, which required a plenary hearing. Elizabeth was very easy to communicate with in person, over the phone and through email. She worked very diligently to ensure that each case was aggressively presented and won. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone in need of a top notch family attorney.”

  • Very Highly Competent, Excellent, Compassionate, NJ's Top Attorney

    “I retained her after reading online reviews about her and I am so glad I believed it. I read other client comments and I truly agree with them she is an Exceptional attorney who has helped me to get my kids back to NJ, then got my TRO dismissed in a full blown FRO trial and represented me in my divorce case too. My case was extensively litigious and very volatile. The way Elizabeth handled it was TERRIFIC. She is one of the Attorneys who does not want unnecessary litigation unless the opposing party doesn't want to settle and keeps litigating and we had to go through it. She knows the LAW and very often she is able to read the Judge's mind which I have witnessed in the court order.”

  • Amazing Lawyer!!!

    “Elizabeth was amazing from the very beginning of my divorce process. She not only was clear and prompt in all communication, but also connected with me on a personal level where I felt very comfortable going into all details of my divorce and the reasons why I was getting divorced. I whole heartily recommend her and her team. Not only did she help me through the process, but did so within 4 months! I met her in March and was divorced by June! Thank you so much Liz, you are truly an exceptional lawyer!!”
