Need a prenuptial agreement? You have come to the right place. A prenuptial agreement, also called a premarital agreement or premarital contract, is just that: a contract that you make with a lawyer before you get married. It allows a couple to decide what will become property of the marriage and what will remain separate. If you have children from a previous relationship before getting married, prenups can help you figure out custody issues beforehand. Some reasons we also recommend prenups: if one spouse brings much greater money and property into the marriage; if a spouse gives up a high-paying job to stay home with the kids or to move; if one spouse is part of a family business; and if you have different investment and retirement goals. Rest assured, prenups are not just for those who have lots of money. Since money can be a big reason people get divorced, talking through money issues beforehand can help prevent fights later on.
We also create postnuptial agreements, after a couple has been married.
