Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements | What is a Prenuptial Agreement?
A prenuptial agreement, or prenup, is an agreement made prior to marriage that establishes the property of each party and how it will be divided in the event of a divorce. Hiring an attorney before creating a prenup is important because a poorly written or prepared document can be challenged in a court of law. At our Buffalo Law Firm, Randy H. Gugino will help you create a comprehensive agreement that addresses all your issues and concerns and protects your most valuable assets.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements | Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement
- Establishing Separate Property: One of the primary functions of a prenuptial agreement is to establish certain property as separate property — meaning it cannot be distributed in the event of a divorce.
- Protecting Beneficiaries: A prenuptial agreement can ensure that your property goes to your children or intended recipient after your death or divorce.
- Clarifying Responsibilities: Prenuptial agreements are also useful in establishing the roles and responsibilities of each spouse.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements | What is a Post-Nuptial Agreement?
A post-nuptial agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement. The difference between them is that a post-nuptial agreement is created after you are married, rather than prior to the marriage. Common reasons for wanting to draft a post-nuptial agreement include establishing separate property, or to protect your assets. Dedicated Buffalo Prenuptial Agreement Attorney Randy Gugino will help you draft a comprehensive post-nuptial agreement that ensures the protection of your most valuable assets.
