Experienced Counsel for Prenuptial Agreements in Kendall County

A prenuptial agreement is a written agreement that is executed prior to a marriage that outlines what will happen to marital property in the event of a divorce, separation, or death. While many people are turned off by the notion of preparing for a divorce before even getting married, doing so can prevent serious legal and emotional strife if the marriage did fail down the line. If the marriage endures the prenuptial agreement is moot, but if it does not it could be invaluable.

Many people can benefit from a premarital agreement including:

  • Individuals who have high-value assets;
  • Individuals who have business interests to protect, particularly family businesses; and
  • Individuals who have children from previous relationships who inheritance could be affected by a divorce.

Our attorneys can discuss how a premarital agreement can protect your interests and work in your particular situation. There are many different ways to structure a prenuptial agreement, and we are skilled in customizing each agreement to the specific needs of our clients.

Drafting Postnuptial Agreements in Kendall County

Postnuptial agreements can address all of the same issues as prenuptial agreements, but they are executed after the marriage. Sometimes couples do not fully consider the need for a prenuptial agreement prior to getting married or do not have sufficient time to negotiate the terms of the agreement. Settling these matters after the marriage in a postnuptial agreement provides the same level of protection as a prenuptial agreement.

Postnuptial agreements can also be executed when a marriage is in trouble. By settling some of the more potentially contentious matters related to a divorce in a postnuptial agreement, a couple may be able to find the breathing room to work through their problems.
