Effective Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

Many people assume that only wealthy people need prenuptial agreements. However, as more people get married later in life or enter into second marriages, a prenuptial agreement can provide important financial protection.

I am family law attorney Monika Blacha. I draft prenuptial and postnuptial agreements for clients in Naperville and the surrounding areas. I also advise people who are asked to sign a prenuptial agreement. I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Do I Need A Prenuptial Agreement?

With few exceptions, all assets you accumulate during your marriage are subject to division with your spouse in the event of a divorce. Even assets you owned before your marriage could have a marital property component if they increased in value during your marriage or were mingled with marital assets.

There are many reasons why a prenuptial agreement may make sense for you. Here are some examples:

  • To determine in advance how assets should be divided in the event of a divorce
  • To determine who is responsible for debts
  • To protect a business or family property
  • To protect the financial interests of children from a prior marriage

As a divorce and family law attorney with more than 15 years of experience, I can help you draft an agreement that accomplishes your goals. To be enforceable, your spouse also needs to be represented by a lawyer.

What Is A Postnuptial Agreement?

A postnuptial agreement is one you enter into during your marriage. It allows you and your spouse to determine how debts and assets should be divided if you should divorce in the future.
