Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement, also known as a prenup, is an agreement generally used when both parties are entering into a marriage with significant assets or when one party has an income that is much greater than the other party's income. The attorneys at Abom & Kutulakis, L.L.P. are expertly practiced in family law and will be your support through the prenuptial agreement process. This way, if there is a need for a divorce or separation in your future, you will have legal backing to protect your assets and experienced attorneys on your side.
As a prenuptial agreement will legally outline the assets held by each party prior to the marriage, you can also enter into a postnuptial agreement with your spouse after the marriage. You may have a life event that initiates the need for this type of agreement or you may just suddenly feel the need to secure your individual assets. Whatever the reason, the attorneys at Abom & Kutulakis, L.L.P. will clearly explain the process.
Our Family Law Attorneys Can Help
When drawing up either agreement, our family law attorneys will use their expertise along with the expertise of the partners at Abom & Kutulakis, L.L.P. to complete a fully developed agreement that will include your assets prior to marriage, children prior to marriage, protection in the future of your estate or business holdings and tax consequences due to your assets. In the case that a divorce or separation then takes place, you will have a legal starting point to determine the marital settlement. Should the division of marital property need to take place, it will be clear what property and assets were yours prior to the marriage and what was obtained during the marriage as a couple.
