Working to Protect Your Financial Assets

Preparing to marry the love of your life should be exciting, but there are also arrangements that must be established before the wedding—specifically the Prenuptial and Post Nuptial Agreements. In some cases, these arrangements can be completed afterward in a postnuptial agreement. Pre- and postnuptial agreements are legally binding contracts that clearly outline what will happen in the case of a divorce.

With more than 20 years of experience, our Washington DC prenuptial agreement attorneys have worked with many different couples before and after their marriage to put together financial agreements.

The following are generally covered in prenuptial and postnuptial agreements:

  • How to divide up property acquired before the marriage
  • How to divide up property acquired during the marriage
  • Alimony or spousal support arrangements

While a prenuptial agreement protects both party’s assets more thoroughly, this may not be available or thought of by every couple before their marriage. Furthermore, a postnuptial agreement may be implemented at a time when a marriage is going through a rough patch. Whatever the case is, implementing either of these agreements will help protect yourself and your family in the case of any unforeseen event. Finally, be aware that while many courts believe in postnuptial agreements, certain courts may look at postnuptial agreements as a smaller agreement that is more of pressure relief on a relationship and not a legally binding contract.
