PRE & POST NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS

Pre Nuptial Agreement Post Nuptial Agreement Long Island

A prenuptial agreement (prenup) is a legal contract entered into by two people before they get married. It outlines how their assets and debts will be divided in the event of a divorce. A postnuptial agreement (postnup) is similar to a prenup, but it is entered into after the couple is married.

Prenups and postnups can be used to protect the assets of both parties in the event of a divorce. They can also be used to set forth the terms of child custody and child support, and other important issues.

Here are some of the things that can be addressed in a prenup or postnup:

  • The division of assets and debts
  • Child custody and support
  • Spousal support
  • Retirement benefits
  • Property ownership
  • Business interests
  • Debts incurred before or during the marriage
  • The right to terminate the agreement

Here are some of the benefits of having a prenup or postnup:

  • It can provide clarity and certainty about the financial future of both parties in the event of a divorce.
  • It can help to avoid a costly and emotional divorce battle.
  • It can protect the assets of both parties.
  • It can provide peace of mind for both parties.

Here are some of the things to consider when drafting a prenup or postnup:

  • Be sure to have the agreement drafted by an experienced attorney.
  • Be sure to disclose all of your assets and debts to your spouse.
  • Be sure to negotiate the terms of the agreement fairly.
  • Be sure to have the agreement reviewed by a financial advisor.

Here are some of the risks of not having a prenup or postnup:

  • Your assets could be divided unequally in the event of a divorce.
  • You could be forced to pay spousal support or child support for a longer period of time.
  • You could lose your business interests or retirement benefits.
  • You could have to go through a costly and emotional divorce battle.

At one of the hardest and most stressful times of my life, it was so comforting to have a team at Hornberger and Verbitsky who ALWAYS responded in record speed to my questions, phone calls, emails or texts and who I felt really cared about helping me through this difficult time. It was a long few years and I am grateful to all of you. Thank you so much Rob, AnneMarie, Christine, Patty, Joan and Lawrence. Your guidance, professionalism and expertise is appreciated beyond measure.

I would give 6 stars if I could. I can't say enough good things about Robert and his firm. We were in a situation for over 2 years and I could have never made it through without Robert's experience and knowledge. He guided me through tough times when needed and his expertise could "read" the situation and make the next best move for me. He was tough when he needed to be tough (thankfully) and at the same time guided me through the process to make me feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. I would not want to go through this process without Robert and his team having my back. he helped move the case along and not waste any time or money. One last time, I 100% endorse Robert and his expertise.
