Wisconsin Lawyers for Prenuptial and Post-Marital Agreement
Experienced Milwaukee Family Law and Divorce Attorneys
When couples get married, they do not usually do so with the intent of one day divorcing. However, there is nothing wrong with hoping for the best and planning for the worst. This is the purpose of prenuptial and postnuptial (or post-marital) agreements. Still, many couples struggle with the idea of discussing such documents because they fear that doing so will doom their relationship. At Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP, we are sensitive to these apprehensions. We handle your prenuptial and post-marital agreement needs with the respect and professionalism you deserve.
Helping You Prepare for the Future
Prenuptial and post-marital agreements are legally binding documents that determine how assets will be divided, should a divorce or death occur. Prenuptial agreements are done before the marriage takes place. In contrast, postnuptial agreements are done after the marriage has occurred. These are most often used if a couple failed to sign a prenuptial agreement or if circumstances have changed.
The reasons for wanting a prenuptial or post-marital agreement are often as varied as the couples who sign them. Our attorneys respond to your unique needs by providing personalized, attentive legal representation. We take the time to ensure you understand the process, provide you with thoughtful answers to your questions, and ensure you have the information you need to make well-informed decisions about your prenuptial or post-marital agreement.
Do You Need a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement?
Any couple can decide to enter into a prenuptial or post-marital agreement. However, couples who carry a certain level of risk in divorce tend to benefit the most. This risk can be the potential of a significant loss among those with a high net worth or major disparity in income. It could be the risk of having a business be split or liquidated, should a divorce occur. Or it could be that one or both parties have children from a previous marriage that could lose their inheritance in a divorce.
Whatever the circumstances, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can help to lessen the stress and duration of a divorce, should one occur. You can even address issues like the division of assets, child support, or spousal support in your marital agreement. However, it is critical that you seek skilled assistance with such agreements since any oversight could nullify the agreement or cause significant loss.
