Prenuptial agreements can be useful in many circumstances. If you have substantial assets or debts prior to marriage, these agreements can reduce the likelihood of misunderstanding during the marriage and will aid in settling many issues should a divorce occur.
A prenuptial agreement should never be entered into on the eve of a wedding, and both parties should be represented by independent counsel to ensure the agreements are valid and enforceable. The lawyers at Travers & Travers are experienced in preparing and analyzing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements and can advise you on all the aspects of these documents.
A prenuptial agreement is a contract between the parties which governs the character, distribution and management of assets. Additionally, a prenuptial agreement can predetermine any future spousal support and the distribution of future debt.
The important element is that the discussion be done well in advance of the wedding and there are no issues of duress or pressure and that both sides are represented by their own attorney or lawyer.
