A Prenuptial Agreement Can Be A Lifesaver
A prenuptial agreement can be used for several purposes. It can identify separate property and maintain its status as distinct from marital or community property. Most often, a prenuptial agreement is used by persons entering into second marriages to protect the separate legacies and inheritances of the parties’ children. A postnuptial or marital agreement is used to protect the assets and interests of the parties after marriage.

During that time he has written or reviewed countless prenuptial and postnuptial agreements for clients ranging in age from young persons to mature adults.

It’s Wise To Protect Separate Assets
The Law Offices of Thomas M. Polinger advises clients in matters involving:
- Drafting of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
- Review of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
- Identification of potential problem areas that may affect your rights
- Cohabitation agreements for unmarried couples
- And others
A premarital agreement can put a pending marriage on firmer ground by removing potential sources of conflict. To protect your separate assets however, such an agreement must be properly drafted. In addition, it must be contracted without duress and far enough before the wedding that each party has an opportunity to fully understand its contents.
