Our blog post last week discussed businesses and prenuptial agreements in the context of divorce. Unfortunately, marriage dissolution can present a couple with a whole host of legal issues. Child custody, child support, spousal support, and property division can all become hotly contested issues, fueled by bitter emotions. At times, the divorce process can be ugly and drawn out, but this does not always have to be the case.
Instead, those considering marriage can opt to protect their interests by signing a prenuptial agreement, which can prevent headaches and heartaches in the event that divorce does occur. The legal team at Andrew Russ Law is experienced at prenuptial agreement negotiation and drafting. Though the creation of such an agreement may seem simple, it is a delicate matter. Failing to adequately address every issue important to a couple can result in unintended consequences and unfair resolutions. Therefore, it is best for those considering marriage to discuss their legal options with a competent legal team, like that at Andrew Russ Law.
If you are married and did not have a prenuptial agreement created, it is not too late. Our team can help you draft a postnuptial agreement that can help protect your assets moving forward. Though some may say a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement merely readies one for divorce, this is not true. Partaking in prenuptial and postnuptial agreement talks merely allows a couple to find comfort with their financial arrangements so that they can focus on what really matters: their life together.
Both the marriage and the divorce process can be different for everyone. Therefore, those thinking of getting married or getting divorced should think about discussing the matter with a compassionate, dedicated, and diligent attorney.
