Prenuptial agreements can serve as an insurance policy for couples about to get married. The idea of a prenuptial agreement is to help couples get on equal footing through determining upfront how their assets will be handled. Couples stand nothing to lose once a prenuptial agreement is drafted to take money concerns out of the equation.
Our attorneys, Robert N. Hamilton and Jennifer R. Piper, and our team of legal professionals, have an extensive background establishing simple to complex premarital agreements depending on the couple's situation. Prenuptial agreements can be particularly beneficial for couples getting married a second or third time with children. A well-defined prenuptial agreement can help protect children's inheritance from a previous marriage.
