Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can protect your financial interests. They can also protect your relationship from uncertainty about financial rights upon divorce. However, the legal requirements for a valid prenuptial or postnuptial agreement are strict. Independent legal counsel for each party is necessary when the agreement is being drafted and before it is executed so each party has input into the terms of the agreement and understanding of the legal consequences of the agreement. Full and honest financial disclosures before signing the agreement are also required to have a valid prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. Our attorneys can help you navigate the process of drafting and signing these agreements, so you can rest assured that you have done all you could do to have a valid prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.
