We help our clients reach prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that protect their rights. For couples going through a divorce, we can help you determine the validity of an existing agreement and ensure the terms are enforced in the separation agreement or divorce.
While once regarded as something only reserved for those with substantial wealth, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are becoming more commonplace for couples across all income levels with benefits beyond the mere financial implications.
A comprehensive prenuptial agreement covers all issues that could have an effect on the property rights of the parties, such as inheritance, taxes and the financial treatment of children from previous marriages in the event of a divorce.
Postnuptial agreements are another option for couples seeking to protect their property rights. In Michigan, these agreements must be fair and equitable with sufficient consideration other than the marriage itself, and not made in contemplation of divorce.
