New York Prenuptial Agreements
What are the Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement?
A prenuptial agreement is a legal document that specifies a couple's wishes in marriage and in the event of a future divorce or legal separation. The document provides instruction in regards to how property division,
maintenance (alimony), estate rights and all other important aspects of a marriage should be dealt with if the marriage ends in divorce.
Regardless of a couple's level of income and assets, it is best for anyone entering into marriage to understand his or her financial legal rights and obligations and consider executing a prenuptial agreement. A prenuptial agreement protects your property during a divorce.
While many happy, soon-to-be-married couples can't possibly imagine or foresee their marriage ending in divorce, the truth is that even some of the strongest marriages don't last forever. At Samuelson Hause & Samuelson, LLP, we genuinely hope that your marriage lasts a lifetime and that you and your partner experience nothing but happiness and joyous memories for as long as you both shall live. That being said, we also encourage you to be prepared, protected, and financially secure should your marriage end differently than you plan.
