Establishing a prenuptial agreement (also known as a “prenup”) does not mean that you do not love or trust your spouse. Rather, it means you are willing to have open, honest communication.
I can write for you a prenuptial agreement, antenuptial agreement
and postnuptial agreement.
For legal advice regarding your situation, contact me, Cleveland, Ohio, family lawyer Simon W. Johnson.
A prenuptial agreement establishes what will happen in the event of death or divorce.
Does either party have children from another previous relationship?
Does either party have significant property or assets to bring into the marriage?
Does either party have interests in a small business?
Does the couple have specific parameters for how finances should be handled throughout the marriage?
A prenuptial agreement may address any of these issues and many other concerns that the parties discuss.
In order for a prenuptial agreement to be upheld, there must be full disclosure of all assets and liabilities, both parties must have had opportunity to consult a lawyer and the agreement must be established in writing and signed by both parties.
I will help you through the process of establishing a valid prenuptial agreement and can also help to negotiate post-marital agreements (postnuptial agreements).
