Protect Your Financial Interests
Unfortunately, a marriage is almost as likely to end in divorce as it is to last a lifetime. With this reality in mind, it is important for anyone with significant assets or entering into a second marriage to consider the possibility of a prenuptial agreement.
Drafting and properly executing a prenuptial agreement is a complex matter that should be handled by an experienced divorce attorney. Our attorneys at Brooke, Brady & Schopfer, LLP, can help you understand your rights, consider the many different issues a prenuptial agreement can address and candidly discuss the practical risks and rewards. Contact us today to discuss your options and legal needs during a free initial consultation at our Poughkeepsie, New York, law office.
What Can Drafting a Prenuptial Agreement Accomplish?
A prenuptial agreement may be used to protect financial assets or a family business or address other issues. New York law states that all property acquired during a marriage, with few exceptions, is marital property, unless the parties opt out with an agreement.
What Is a Postnuptial Marriage Agreement?
If you wish to protect your property but have already married, you may obtain the protection you seek through a postnuptial agreement. Some husbands and wives also use postnuptial agreements as a tool for their overall estate planning objectives.
