Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Our firm has experience in preparing Prenuptial (prior to marriage) and Postnuptial (after marriage) Agreements. We can guide you through the intricacies of this process, insuring that the Agreement that you reach is in your best interests and will, if necessary, be later enforced by a Court. Many people erroneously believe that you can simply print out a “form” Prenuptial Agreement, but are then disappointed when the Agreement is either not enforced and/or does not accomplish what was intended. This is an area of law that is fraught with significant legal questions and you need a professional, who has prepared and evaluated numerous Pre and Postnuptial Agreements to insure that your goals are reached. In addition to preparing Pre and Postnuptial Agreements, Ms. Crabb is experienced in litigating issues surrounding Pre and Postnuptial Agreements if necessary.
Prenuptial agreements (“pre-nups”) have several advantages:
- Give a couple the peace of mind that their finances are in order should something happen
- Protect separate finances for children from a previous marriage
- Protect business assets or investment accounts
- Reduce the contentious atmosphere of property division, should a divorce happen
- Make arrangements for the death of a spouse
- Provide protections for both parties
At Weber, Crabb & Wein, P.A., we have extensive experience with Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements. Our lawyers will sit down to talk with you about your goals in regard to your assets. We will explain the benefits of the Pre and PostNuptial Agreements and help draft one that meets your needs. If your spouse presents you with an Agreement, we will review it and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the agreement with you and negotiate any provisions that would threaten your future security.
