Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
At the Law Offices of Christine J. Klein, P.C., we do not believe that prenuptial agreements take the romance out of your wedding. Rather, there is nothing more romantic than caring for and protecting yourself and your loved one at a time when you both want to be fair to each other. Many people are getting married later in life or are entering second marriages, so they should take time to review their assets and consider what legal steps might be necessary before tying the knot.
Christine J. Klein is an experienced Westchester County prenuptial agreement attorney who understands the importance of creating documents that will protect you before, during and after a marriage. Our law firm will take the time to compose an individualized premarital agreement that reflects your needs and goals for your blended family.Why Do I Need a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement?
A vast number of agreements can be drawn up before or during a marriage or partnership to define property and assets, including homes, retirement funds, stocks and bonds, cars and even pets. These include cohabitation agreements, prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements and more. Prenuptial agreements allow you to decide your future at a time when you both are feeling loving and fair. A well-drafted premarital agreement can help you:
- Protect your assets
- Protect your children from a prior marriage
- Avoid expensive litigation in the event of a divorce or separation
- Define alimony or maintenance in the future
- Define marital and separate property
Sometimes, the decision to draw up a legal document regarding your marriage is made after your relationship matures. At the Law Offices of Christine J. Klein, P.C., we can draw up a postnuptial agreement for you that takes into consideration:
- Career changes
- Childbirth or adoption
Working with an experienced lawyer on your postnuptial agreement can also head off disputes over money because we proactively discuss your assets and liabilities in a truthful and open manner. Even if you did not think a prenup was necessary before you got married, it is never too late to draw up a postnuptial agreement.Contact the Law Offices of Christine J. Klein, P.C.
