A marital agreement, also known as a “prenuptial” or “postnuptial” agreement, is an agreement between prospective spouses, or spouses, made in contemplation of marriage or after marriage, and before filing for divorce or separation. Without a marital agreement, the family law of the state control issues of support and property distribution upon divorce, and rights of inheritance at death. With a marital agreement, those rights, or any part of them, can be waived, established, expanded, or contracted by the parties.
At Walker, Wright & Associates, LLP, we have over 60 years of combined experience in advising clients about a marital agreement in order to assist them in planning for the end of the marriage by divorce or death, knowing that they may be more interested in planning celebrations and focusing on dreams of living happily ever after.
Without legal guidance, prospective spouses may not fully understand the implications of the concessions they expect their future spouse to make, and may not have a balanced view of what, if anything, should be offered in return for expected concessions.
We are available to advise you in negotiating, drafting and interpreting a marital agreement in order to protect your interests.
