Such agreements allow parties to create a contract that makes a predetermination of terms of a future divorce, including property rights and spousal maintenance.

If not properly drafted, these agreements will not withstand claims against their validity and enforceability. Bollier Ciccone LLP’s team of Family Law experts [links to Legal Team] will ensure that your premarital and postnuptial agreements are properly drafted and most importantly, ultimately enforceable. These agreements can also save thousands of dollars in future attorneys’ fees by anticipating such issues upfront. Prenuptial and postnuptial partition agreements can address many issues in the event of a divorce, including:

  • Payment of attorneys’ fees in a divorce.
  • Duties and obligations of one or both spouses during the marriage
  • Ownership and characterization of property
  • Rights and obligations regarding marital property
  • Division or disposition of property in the event of death or divorce
  • Spousal support or contractual alimony
  • Tax and estate planning issues
