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.

We are experienced in drafting and negotiating these agreements so that our clients are protected in case of Divorce.

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.

Assets You Can Protect

A prenuptial agreement can help you protect the following:
