The Need for a Pre or Post-Marital Agreement
No one wants to consider divorce before a wedding or in the first few months of a marriage. No one wants to think about which item goes to which spouse following the demise of the marital relationship. But the reality is that nearly 50% of all first marriages in the United States end in divorce. Without some form of marital agreement, a divorce becomes complicated if the two spouses start engaging in a battle over dividing business ownership interest or retirement accounts.
For a prenuptial agreement to be valid, it must meet some requirements. First, of all, the agreement must be executed before the wedding. If this does not happen, a prenuptial agreement cannot exist. However, there is the option of a postnuptial agreement in this circumstance.
The next requirement is that the agreement be entered upon when both parties have legal counsel and full financial disclosure of all assets. If these requirements are met, the agreement is usually enforceable as long as there is no fraud or duress involved in the execution.
Creating Your Law That Governs Your Marriage and Beyond
At The Law Offices of Michael Samuel Dyer, we attend to every detail of your marital agreement. That requires full disclosure by both spouses. We identify the property and assets owned, and we determine if spousal support will be needed. An attorney can help you create the groundwork for an amicable divorce, but hopefully you never need to use this agreement.
