Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Though contemplating the end of one’s marriage and the resulting asset distribution isn’t exactly romantic, pre- and postnuptial agreements can provide peace of mind.  These agreements provide the certainty of an amicable and prompt resolution should the unfortunate event of a divorce arise. By avoiding a costly proceeding and an intrusive discovery, a couple can end their relationship without the acrimony of an adversarial proceeding. These agreements may protect children in the family from the emotional stress of a legal battle.

At Bender & Crane LLP, we often find that young couples will spend more time planning their weddings than their marriages.  A prenuptial agreement can offer invaluable transparency into one’s partner’s finances. Our experienced attorneys navigate their clients through this delicate process. We help couples entering into a second or third marriage to execute a prenuptial agreement, so each spouse may make provisions for their children from previous relationships. We also assist individuals of significant wealth to protect their financial interests, their business interests, or gifts.

Our attorneys work closely with clients to create a postnuptial agreement, whereby married couples settle their financial qualms in the event of a divorce. Our attorneys work diligently to negotiate the most beneficial terms to protect our clients’ rights and secure their future financial independence.
