Prenuptial/Post Nuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements were once thought of to be for the rich and famous, however, now they are often a prerequisite to a lot of marriages. When entering into a marriage, it is not only emotional but financial as well and with the economy going up and down people feel more protective of their assests and financial future. A prenuptial agreement can help to avoid a lot of disagreements if ever there was a divorce. The clients who opt for a prenup are often Business Owners, High Net Worth Families, those with High Profile Careers, and Mature Adults who have children. If you feel like you would like to explore this option please schedule a consultation with us.
