The Basics Of Prenuptial Agreements
People sometimes make the mistake of believing that prenuptial agreements are only for the rich. While our firm is pleased to draft and review prenuptial agreements for high-asset individuals, we also caution people from taking such a narrow view of prenuptial agreements. Like auto insurance or homeowners insurance, a prenuptial agreement is a form of financial protection that can serve a wide variety of needs.
If you have assets you own prior to your marriage and want to protect these assets or their appreciation during your marriage, it is imperative that you contact a lawyer about drafting a prenuptial agreement on your behalf. If you are already married, you can draft a postnuptial agreement.
If your fiancé(e) has handed you a prenuptial agreement, we highly recommend that you consult with an attorney so that you may fully understand your legal rights before signing the agreement. We are pleased to review prenuptial agreements for our clients. We can also advise you about overturning or defending such agreements.
Cohabitation Agreements For Domestic Partners
A cohabitation agreement is used to clarify the financial responsibilities of couples who live together but are not married. A cohabitation agreement can help couples define the ownership of assets and responsibility for debts. A cohabitation agreement may be used by men and women in a domestic partnership as well as same-sex couples. Aaby Family Law, PC, is pleased to assist clients with the drafting and/or review of cohabitation agreements.
