Protecting Clients With Strong Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
Everyone can benefit from establishing a prenuptial agreement while preparing for marriage. The agreement itself is a commitment to wanting the best for each other, no matter what the future holds. The act of developing the agreement can help couples clarify and align certain expectations, so they enter marriage with an even stronger foundation.
A prenuptial agreement can greatly reduce a couple’s stress in the event of divorce by allowing them to make advance decisions about:
- The division of assets and property
- Division of any marital debt
- Division of business interests
- Spousal maintenance/support
At Stein & Stein, we help people develop legally strong, forward-looking prenuptial agreements that protect our clients’ best interests in the event of the unexpected. With more than 35 years of experience handling complex and sensitive family law situations, our lawyers offer you personalized service, prompt responses to questions, and the ability to focus on your legal concern.
Couples who are already married can also take steps to protect their shared future with a postnuptial agreement. A “postnup” allows a married couple to make decisions about assets and property in the event of divorce. It is important that these agreements be crafted intentionally, with a thorough understanding of the assets involved. Our attorneys have been leaders in complex family law in Illinois for decades, drawing on deep legal knowledge and a thorough understanding of financial issues.
