Make Responsible Choices for the Future of Your Family
Prenuptial agreements are contracts that can be used for a multitude of reasons, all designed to help people protect their assets, their children and their other interests in the event of divorce or death. By making these decisions prior to a marriage, it is easier for couples to understand their options and to make important decisions that could impact them in the future.
Drafting a prenuptial agreement requires an experienced attorney who can ensure that the agreement is done correctly and will meet the expectations of the couple. At the Law Offices of Myron A. Wolf, in Hamilton, Ohio, our lawyers and staff have more than 40 years of family law experience and can help you plan for the future. We can help you identify concerns that need to be addressed and draft an agreement that is based on your individual needs and interests.
Reasons to Get a Prenuptial Agreement
When couples divorce without a premarital agreement, and they cannot work out issues of custody, visitation and support on their own, the state will use its own guidelines to determine issues. There are many reasons for marrying couples to get a prenuptial agreement, including the ability to gain control over important marital issues. These reasons include:
- Large difference in income or wealth between spouses
- High debt load for one or both of the spouses
- One or both of the spouses owning a business or part of a business
- Ensuring that an estate plan works
- One or both of the spouses are remarrying and have children, support obligations or significant assets from a previous marriage
In order to make a prenuptial agreement work, both parties must agree to a full disclosure of assets and debts and there must be sufficient time given between the signing of the document and the marriage. There are strict protocols to follow when doing a successful prenuptial agreement and our attorneys can ensure that yours is drafted correctly.
