Nuptial Agreement Lawyers in Suffolk County
Postnuptial & Prenuptial Agreements
In a marriage, people have the option of entering into a written agreement that clearly and precisely outlines how each person's separate and marital assets will be divided, should the marriage end in death or divorce.
At The Meyers Law Group, P.C., we help clients with these agreements both before and after tying the knot:
- Prenuptial agreements — Also known as prenups, these agreements are drafted before the marriage takes place.
- Postnuptial agreements — These agreements are drafted after the marriage has been made official.
We have helped countless couples draft agreements since 2003. 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, 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 prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. In most situations, couples enter into these agreements to define, in clear terms, how their marital and separate property assets and possessions will be divided if the marriage were to end.
Prenuptial 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
