In years past, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements were considered the province of the wealthy. The fact is, however, that prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are sensible for couples from all walks of life. These agreements must be carefully structured to protect your interests. Working with an experienced attorney can offer substantial benefits.
- Each party must fully disclose all assets and liabilities.
- Each party must be represented by independent legal counsel or must waive the right to legal counsel.
- There must be seven days from when a person first viewed the prenuptial agreement and when the prenuptial agreement was signed.
- The agreement is not executed under fraud or duress.
