Using Marital Agreements To Protect Your Assets

Asset Protection Planning

Although no one wants to think about the potential for a divorce, it is important to be prepared prior to the marriage, just in case. Too many people wait too long to plan for equitable distribution and other important aspects that come into play in a divorce, which dramatically increase the stress and complications when divorce proceedings begin.

At Weinstein & Randisi, we are your family's law firm, here to help you and your family with all of your legal needs. With decades of experience serving clients throughout the Rochester, New York, area, we take pride in the personalized service and detailed representation we provide for each of our clients.

Attorney Meredith M.B. Lamb, Esq., our lead family and divorce lawyer, will represent you personally throughout your legal matter and provide you with sound advice and counsel on all the important aspects of your prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement. Whether you are entering a same-sex marriage or opposite-sex marriage, count on us to help you protect your interests.

Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

The only difference between a prenuptial and postnuptial agreement is the time when they are created. A "prenup" comes before a couple is married and a "postnup" is created after a couple is married (although it is not prepared in preparation of a divorce). Both of these agreements are basically written legal agreements between two parties in which they agree ahead of time on all of the important aspects of a divorce. A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can include matters like equitable distribution, alimony and spousal support, and any number of other issues the couple deems important.

Ideally, a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement would never be needed because the couple never gets divorced. But if a divorce does become a reality, an agreement of this kind will be invaluable for you to protect your financial and personal interests, and to make sure the divorce proceeds as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

"I have handled divorce-related matters in New York and North Carolina, and I have personal and professional experience in this area. With a wealth of knowledge regarding the various issues that can arise in a divorce, I can help make sure you have ironclad protection of your assets and your personal interests. In the event that a divorce does come up in the future, you will be prepared."
