The Business Of Getting Married
Marriage is ideally a celebration of your love on the happiest day of your life. But, there is a point when you sign on the dotted line to make it legal. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are often quite useful and necessary for couples with complicated personal finances or business interests. Each agreement can be as unique as the marriage itself, but they generally outline the details of ownership and obligation for a couple.
At Mastri Law LLC, we regularly work with engaged couples in the Scranton and Wilkes-Barre area to negotiate and draft an inclusive and legally binding prenuptial agreement. While this may be an awkward topic for many couples to discuss, we can provide valuable help as a legally knowledgeable third-party participant in this process, either alone or in conjunction with another lawyer.
How Prenuptial Agreements Protect You
An attorney with family law experience in Pennsylvania can help you draft a prenup that addresses your specific needs, but here are some commonly covered issues to consider:
- Clarify the responsibility and financial obligations of each party
- Provide peace of mind to family members and business partners
- Protect premarital assets, retirement plans and inheritance
- Set the division of assets if one spouse dies or the couple gets divorced
- Memorialize any matter agreed upon by the couple
What Is A Postnuptial Agreement?
This is a written agreement made between spouses after the marriage has begun. A relatively new area in law, the idea is that a couple can fix something going wrong in their marriage. While the tone is ideally as collaborative as the marriage itself, couples contemplating separation or divorce can also use it.
