Protect Your Property And Assets In The Event Of A Divorce

Planning for the unexpected should be a part of every couple's marriage preparations. And this includes thinking about protecting your assets and property in the event the marriage doesn't go as planned and ends in divorce.

At Ratzer Family Law, our dedicated lawyers provide a wide range of family law services, including those related to prenuptial agreements (also known as premarital agreements). If you are looking for a law firm that can provide you with exceptional legal representation and work to protect your rights and interests with regard to prenuptial agreements, we can help you.

Understanding Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a legal document that typically details the property rights of a married couple. It becomes effective when a couple is married, and in order for it to be enforceable, it is necessary that both parties enter the agreement without undue influence.

Drafting the right type of prenuptial agreement requires an in-depth assessment of the financial position of both parties. A typical prenuptial agreement may include provisions regarding:

  • Homes
  • Stocks
  • Bank accounts
  • Business ownership and assets
  • Children from a previous marriage
  • Professional licenses
  • Intellectual property
  • Retirement assets

At Ratzer Family Law, it is our goal to make sure every aspect of your marriage is addressed in a prenuptial agreement and that the terms of the agreement clearly represent your preferences. We will work diligently to make sure your assets and interests are protected. We also understand that every couple is different — and that's why your prenuptial agreement will be tailored to address the unique needs of you and your partner.

For couples who are already married and opted not to complete a prenuptial agreement, we may assist you with completing a postnuptial agreement so your assets can be protected if your marriage ends. You may find a postnuptial agreement ideal if your financial circumstances changed significantly after your marriage or if you simply had no time before the marriage to complete a prenup.
