Prenuptial Agreements

 

Once thought of as controversial, prenuptial agreements are now seen as an effective tool used to protect individual parties in the future.  Today, prenuptial and marital agreements are used by couples in a first marriage as well as those in subsequent marriages who wish to designate the character of property to protect their interests in the event of a divorce.
  
At Currin, Wuest, Mielke, Paul & Knapp, P.L.L.C., we assist clients with the following:

Prenuptial agreements 

Postnuptial agreements 

Marital property agreements 

Partition agreements


The goal of each of these documents is essentially the same:  to protect the individual interest of each spouse if the marriage terminates by death or divorce.  A marital property agreement can address property division, spousal maintenance (alimony), separate and community property.

 
It is not enough just to have a marital property agreement.  It must be drafted properly and be legally enforceable.  Working with an attorney can ensure that your agreement is legally binding and accurately addresses your needs and concerns.
 

Subsequent Marriages
  

A prenuptial or marital property agreement is especially useful in subsequent marriages.  When spouses have children from a previous marriage, a marital property agreement can characterize and protect a spouse’s separate property and protect their children’s inheritance.
