Nuptial Agreement Lawyers in Suffolk County
Preparing Couples for Secure Futures
Before people get married, they have the option of entering into a written agreement that clearly and precisely outlines how each person's separate and martial assets will be divided, should the marriage end in death or divorce. This agreement is referred to as either a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement. Prenuptial agreements are drafted before the marriage takes place, and postnuptial agreements are created after the marriage. The Meyers Law Group, P.C. has helped countless couples draft agreements since 2004, and our Suffolk County nuptial agreement lawyers can help you, too.
What Do Nuptial Agreements Address?
When a couple discusses and acknowledges each other's financial, economic, and social wishes before or shortly after entering a marriage, it helps build trust in the relationship and eliminates confusion and tension in the event of divorce. There are many reasons why a couple may choose to draft a pre or postnuptial agreement. In most situations, couples enter into pre or postnuptial agreements to define, in clear terms, how their marital and separate property assets and possessions will be divided if the marriage were to end in divorce or death.
Pre and postnuptial agreements also indicate how other familial obligations will be handled, such as:
- Spousal support
- Child support
- Child custody
- Inheritances, heirlooms, trusts, estates, etc.
- Pensions, stocks, bonds, retirement funds, etc.
- Enhanced or continued education
