A prenuptial agreement or pre-marital agreement is a contract entered into by two adults intent upon marriage who wish to resolve all issues of ownership of real and personal property owned prior to the marriage, and additional property which may be acquired after the marriage. The issues of alimony or handling of retirement benefits for either party can also be set out if the marriage eventually dissolves. In today's world, with more and more people waiting to marry, there is a strong likelihood that they have individually acquired assets or professional advancement that will enhance the marriage but would present a significant risk of loss on someone if the marriage does not survive. A clear and concise prenuptial agreement will protect all parties. Brinkley Walser offers a full range of family law services to our clients.
