Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer in Queens County
Protecting Your Assets in the Event of Divorce
Many years ago, prenuptial agreements were often given from one spouse who has significant assets to the other in order to protect financial interests. Over the years, prenuptial agreements have greatly evolved. At the Law Office of Frank Bruno, Jr., our Queens County family law attorney has more than 20 years of experience helping couples protect their assets and the future of their relationships.
We highly recommend that all engaged spouses consider drafting a prenuptial agreement. Before you can enter into a marriage, you will need to ensure that your prenuptial agreement is amenable by both sides and properly executed.
Benefits of a Thorough Prenuptial Agreement
Every prenuptial agreement that is drafted has its own individual conditions which can be customized to your needs. For example, you can specify how property and finances would be handled in the event of a divorce. A prenuptial agreement can be thought of as a "contract" which should be signed by you and your soon-to-be spouse before you get married.
Many people feel that presenting a prenuptial agreement can be perceived negatively, but many married couples have found that it actually provides significant relief. It gives you the opportunity to discuss expectations in the marriage, as well as saving you stress later on.
A few other benefits of drafting a prenuptial agreement include:
- Protecting yourself from your partner's existing debt
- Discussing how spousal support would be handled
- Protecting any inheritances given to your children
- Protecting individual real estate, stocks, or assets
