Pre-nuptial and Post-nuptial Agreements

One of Napoleon's famous quotes is "the best defense is a good offense."  That is what pre-nutpial and post-nuptial agreements are:  a good offense.  These agreements resolve any issue before the issue becomes a major problem.   The pre-nuptial and post nuptial agreements resolve financial and property issues in the event of a divorce or death.  One in every ten couples enters into some kind of pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement, especially older couples or those entering into second marriages.  We help clients draft and negotiate agreements while confronting the money issues that no one likes to deal with, in order to protect our clients in the event of divorce or death.  Hopefully our clients will never have to use these agreements, as we are hopeless romantics.  However, if the agreement is used, our clients have already made the determinations on how the separate and community property assets and liabilities are treated.  Give our firm a call to discuss how to tailor a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement to meet your particular circumstances.
