Why You May Need A Prenuptial Agreement
When you get married, your intention is to spend the rest of your life together. This doesn’t always happen. Also, in cases where one or both of you have been married before and have children from that marriage, significant assets or interest in a business or family farm, having a prenuptial agreement may be to your advantage.
Helping Couples Draft Enforceable Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
At Groshek Law PA, in Minneapolis, our family law attorneys know how to prepare prenuptial (also called antenuptial) and postnuptial agreements that not only will hold up in court but are crafted to fit you and your spouse’s situations. In cases where these agreements were significantly unfair to one party, the courts have found them to be invalid and not enforceable.
We will sit down with you to hear your story and discuss your concerns. We want to understand how you would potentially like to see your property divided if your relationship comes to an end or in the event of a death in a blended family.
Helping To Establish Marital Property Rights
It is always recommended that each party have a lawyer review a prenuptial agreement prior to signing it. This gives each person the chance to assess the impact the agreement would have on his or her life if the marriage dissolves. It also ensures that each person understands the agreement he or she is signing and prevents one or the other from claiming he or she had no representation at the time of signing.
We handle all matters of family law. We are also available to give your existing prenuptial agreement an independent review and to consult with you on its effects.
It is very important to understand the effect your agreement will have in the future. You believe you are protecting yourself when you sign it. As things change in your life, it may end up doing more harm than good. Consult with us to make sure your contingency plan for the end of your marriage will actually protect you.
