Safeguard Your Future With A Prenuptial Agreement
As people postpone marriage until later in life or get remarried, it is increasingly common for them to bring significant assets or business interests into the marriage. Securing those assets prior to the wedding can give people peace of mind as they enter into marriage. At Weinstein, Kaplan & Cohen, P.C., in Garden City, New York, we have the experience to draft, review, and negotiate prenuptial agreements calculated to protect the most complex business and property holdings.
Be Proactive And Protect Your Assets
It is common for marriages to involve partners of unequal financial means. Prenuptial agreements provide a legal avenue for each partner to understand and protect their current and future financial interests. Almost any issues that can become involved in a divorce agreement can be dealt with in a premarital agreement. Our attorneys draw on all the resources of our firm to design prenuptial agreements that protect our client’s current and future interests.
Our attorneys have represented clients seeking to protect a wide range of assets:
- Business assets, including future income from the business and the increase in value of a business
- Financial assets, including pensions, family trusts, and real estate
- Inheritance rights, and issues involving the rights of children from a previous marriage
In addition to protecting assets, prenuptial agreements can define the terms of any divorce settlement, including the division of marital property and spousal support. It can also establish a sunset provision under which the terms of the prenuptial agreement expire if the marriage lasts a certain amount of time.
We work closely with our clients to understand their objective in seeking a prenuptial agreement. We then explain and evaluate all the options that are available and draft an agreement that protects the future interests of our clients.
