Pre-nups for Same-Sex Couples in NY
Long Island Divorce Lawyer
With the declaration of a landmark Supreme Court decision in June 2015, all
same-sex couples in New York can rightfully wed and receive all of the benefits and responsibilities
that opposite sex couples are entitled to. However, as many couples rush
to the altar, important aspects of planning for the wedding must be taken
into consideration with help from a seasoned attorney at our firm.
The Meyers Law Group, P.C., we understand your excitement for your upcoming wedding. While embarking
into the journey of
marriage can be an exciting event, it should also be well planned with a prenuptial
agreement. We realize that it may be uncomfortable for you to consider
that it may end in
divorce. However, planning for unforeseen events is always a priority, especially
if you have any estates,
assets or property that you would wish to remain in your possession.
Ensure Your Rights & Interests are Protected
Entering into a prenuptial agreement is a wise idea for any couple who
is considering marriage. Many people view a prenuptial agreement with
a negative outlook. They assume that a couple is predicting a divorce
if they enter into this agreement. However, this agreement is simply contracted
for purposes of protecting oneself from a spouse's debt or protecting
a family business, to expand possible inheritance rights and to identify
which of your assets are considered to be separate and which are marital
in the event of a divorce.
At our firm, we strongly advise all couples making the decision to wed
to enter into a prenuptial agreement. We are prepared to help you finalize
all of the paperwork and to make any decisions regarding adoption or any
other family law matter.
