Prenuptial Agreement

Considering a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement certainly does not mean you believe your relationship will ultimately fail. In my experience, the most common purpose of such a contract is to put to rest financial and social concerns, perhaps even enabling your relationship to flourish.

For many people in today’s society, the establishment of a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement is of major importance. The absence of having such an agreement in place between future spouses and life partners can have a significant and lasting negative impact on both members of the relationship. The financial wellbeing of the relationship as well as other important issues hinge on considering the questions brought up by such an agreement. One of the most important reasons to establish a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement are to establish future property division rights and even alimony.

There are a wide range of factors and considerations that may play a role in your decision to develop a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement, including:

  • Major differences in wealth, property and assets the two parties will bring into the marriage
  • A desire to protect the interests of children from a previous marriage
  • The desire to limit potentially complex and expensive property division, or on other future considerations such as rights to spousal maintenance (alimony) in the event of divorce.

The financial concerns of people entering a matrimonial relationship are shared by others entering or continuing serious relationships. The Daniels Law Firm is dedicated to helping all people with family-related legal needs, let our attorneys assist in the development of:
