Trusted New Jersey Attorney Assists with Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Experienced lawyer drafts and enforces marital agreements
Many couples choose to create prenuptial, or premarital, agreements before they wed or postnuptial agreements after they've tied the knot. Working out the terms of a potential settlement in advance — especially if your joint and separate assets are complex and/or vast — allows you and your significant other to decide how you wish your assets and debts to be divided in the event of a divorce or separation. At the Law Office of Edward R. Wiercinski, I work with couples in throughout New Jersey to create fair and enforceable legal agreements that protect their interests.
Thorough New Jersey counselor advises clients on protecting their assets
Even though you are working on your agreement as a couple, it is important that each of you has his or her own family law attorney to represent you and your interests while protecting your rights. You will also want to make sure that your agreement is drafted correctly in the event that you do get divorced or become separated.
These agreements specifically address matters that may include:
- Who gets what assets in the event that you decide to end your marriage
- How finances and assets will be handled during the marriage
- Spousal support terms
- Any business ownership issues
- What to do with your estate in the event that one of you dies
- The handling of gifts, inheritances or trusts
- Benefits and disability and insurance coverage
A “prenup or postnup” agreement can also specify how different circumstances in the marriage may result in different outcomes during a divorce.
Skilled attorney handles challenges to prenups and postnups
Premarital and postnuptial agreements are legal contracts that are enforceable by law and can prove challenging to contest later. In the event that you signed an agreement and now wish to challenge it, I can advise you on your options and likelihood of success.
You may have valid grounds for challenging the agreement if any of the following occurred:
- Your spouse did not disclose all of his or her assets or debts
- You were unfairly pressured into signing the agreement
- You were made to sign the agreement very close to the actual marriage ceremony
- You were deceived into signing the contract
- You were not advised of your right to separate counsel
If necessary, I can litigate your matter in court. My firm also represents clients who wish to enforce the terms of their prenuptial or postnuptial agreement that a soon-to-be ex wants to contest.
