At The Law Office of John A. Wagner, we are experienced in multiple facets of family law.
You’ve found the person of your dreams and popped the question. One or both of you may have assets you acquired prior to meeting the love of your life, and just in case your relationship ends before death does you part, it is important to protect those assets. Reaching an agreement as to how your physical possessions, real estate, bank accounts, business, potential future acquisitions of property, business, and other assets, does not mean you are planning for a divorce, merely setting forth what will happen in a worst case scenario.
You and your fiancé should have ample time to review any proposed prenuptial agreements with independent counsel of your choosing. This is not an endeavor you should pursue with merely a few days before your wedding vows.
Whether you are planning on entering into an agreement prior to the wedding (prenuptial/antenuptial), or after you have tied the knot (postnuptial), it is important to ensure the proper language is included in the agreement so that should you find yourself in a position where you need to rely upon the terms of the agreement, it will be enforceable during divorce proceedings.
