Prenuptial/Premarital Agreements

Premarital Agreements

Our lawyers at Taylor, Ganson & Perrin, LLP , draw up premarital agreements for clients. The usual purpose of such a document is to protect assets brought into a marriage in the event of a divorce or dissolution. Our attorneys have extensive experience drafting and devising enforceable agreements. We provide careful attention to the goals of our clients and are very particular about the details of the agreement. We have experience and skill anticipating issues that may develop in the future, and work to address these in the prenuptial agreements that we draft. To learn more about prenuptial agreements, contact our Boston law firm.

Having a prenuptial agreement in place is frequently appropriate in second marriages. Individuals entering marriage for the second time have often accumulated some wealth. He or she may have children from their previous marriage--children to whom the parent wants to give some of that accumulated wealth. An agreement can take care of these intentions. In first marriages, a prenuptial agreement is often desired when there is an inequality of wealth between the two parties.

Prenuptial agreements raise sensitive matters. Our attorneys are attentive to the emotional issues involved when addressing these agreements between parties while at the same time drafting prenuptials that protect our clients, are enforceable and stand the test of time.

Whether the marriage is the first or second, individuals entering into prenuptial agreements need to disclose fully the nature and extent of their assets. Failure to do so may invalidate the agreement if contested in the future. Our attorneys are very strict in their insistence on full disclosure, wanting to preserve the enforceability of the agreement for the client.

A well-drafted premarital agreement should include as many eventualities as possible, including matters related to children, divorce, child support, alimony, property division, payment of medical insurance, payment of life insurance, and death. Our attorneys are aware that planning for divorce when the marriage ceremony has not even been performed can be a difficult situation. We avoid awkwardness by advising clients to begin the process as far ahead of the wedding date as possible. Our law firm is committed to handling the negotiations required by a premarital agreement with sensitivity while protecting the marital rights of our client.
