Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys in Poughkeepsie

Protect Your Assets & Responsibilities before Marriage

If you are under the impression that prenuptial agreements are a thing of the past, you might be surprised to learn that this is not the case. While prenuptial agreements tend to carry a negative connotation, they can, in fact, provide many benefits to both parties.

When two people intend to marry, it is logical to establish a document that protects both parties' assets in the event of divorce or death. In fact, some couples find that drafting a prenuptial agreement can put their minds at ease. At Jonna Spilbor Law, our Poughkeepsie prenuptial agreement attorneys can work with you to draft a prenuptial agreement that works for your needs.

What to Include in a Prenuptial Agreement

Many people have the misconception that a prenuptial agreement should cover every matter involved in a couple's marriage or potential divorce. This is not the case. Prenuptial agreements should only cover specific details, which can be fine-tuned based on your individual needs and concerns. If you would like your prenuptial agreement to be solely about finances, it can be. However, it can also be used as a tool to list each party's wishes for the marriage or divorce.

A prenuptial agreement may include details on:

  • How property will be divided in the event of divorce or death
  • How debt acquired before the marriage will be handled
  • What individual/separate property is being brought into the marriage
  • What financial responsibility each spouse will have
  • How disputes regarding the prenuptial agreement should be handled in the future

Drafting or Modifying Prenuptial Agreements

Nobody who is planning a marriage wants to think about how to protect themselves during divorce. However, it is important to take the right steps to ensure that your prenuptial agreement is as accurate as possible in order for it to be admissible. A prenuptial agreement must be drafted carefully so that it is less likely to be challenged in the future.

At Jonna Spilbor Law, we assist couples with drafting new prenups and modifying existing agreements. We can help strengthen legal language or review the way each party's expectations are being communicated.
