The Family Law attorneys at The Reape-Rickett Law firm are highly experienced with the negotiation and drafting of prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements. These agreements can be used to protect separate assets and define what property acquired during the marriage will community or separate or both. The agreements may also be used to insulate from debts and liabilities of a spouse who may put the community at risk Prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements can be tailored to define the scope of assets or income affected by its terms.
Prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements are not just for the wealthy but are common for protecting the rights of children from prior relationships, the business interests of a business or professional practice owner and those entering a second or later in life marriage. The agreements may also discuss and define issues of spousal support.
Our experience is that couples who consider and complete this type of agreement are more open with each other regarding their fiancés and future plans. While an agreement is not a guarantee that a divorce will not occur later, the agreement will reduce potential disputes in the event of a divorce.
