Premarital/Prenuptial And Postmarital/Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements on Long Island and in New York City are becoming increasingly more common. Couples are marrying later in life, or are entering second marriages, and with this comes more family and potentially more wealth/assets, and concern about one’s financial future. The team of Barrocas, Mintz, Misuraca, and Record: Family Law & Mediation have expertise in helping couples negotiate fair and valid agreements that establish property and financial issues at the start of a marriage, 

What is a Prenuptual Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a legal agreement between two people who are planning to get married. This agreement defines how property and assets will be owned and managed during the marriage, and how they will be divided if the marriage dissolves. 

Benefits of Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements are created to:

  • Detail the division of property in the event of divorce
  • Provide for children from a previous marriage
  • Preserve assets brought into the marriage
  • Protect business interests
  • Keep individual debts separate
  • Outline what will be marital property and what will remain separate property
  • Determine management of household finances in advance

What is a Postnuptial Agreement?

Postnuptial agreements accomplish the same goals as prenuptial agreements, but are created after a couple marries or enters into a domestic partnership. People typically request postnuptial agreements when there has been a significant change in the lives of the parties, such as the birth or death of a family member, or a change in finances.

Our Nassau and Sufflok County divorce attorneys understand the New York State law and can draft prenuptual or postnuptual agreements that are enforceable and meet our clients’ financial goals.
