A prenuptial agreement is a contract signed by the engaged couple prior to the wedding and is designed to equally or fairly split the assets / liabilities and define support obligations of each partner in the event of a marriage breakdown. Conventional divorce agreements usually split assets by both parties coming around the table to negotiate losses and gains, and this can result in long court battles and disagreement.
The party claiming that an asset is pre-marital or “exempt” has the burden of proving it. In a long-term marriage, this can sometimes prove challenging. A well-drafted prenuptial agreement can avoid lengthy and expensive litigation later. The attorneys at Riordan & Associates can assist you in drafting a prenuptial agreement or in reviewing a drafted prenuptial agreement that will protect your financial interests.
