Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Lawyers in Queens
Fighting for Your Family’s Best Interests
No one wants their marriage to end in divorce. While the divorce rate in the U.S. has decreased over the past few years, divorce is still a possibility for all couples. In order to prepare for the future, you and your spouse may want to draft a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. It’s not pessimistic—it’s realistic. At Levi Divorce & Family Law Attorneys, principal attorney Natalie Markfeld and our Queens prenuptial and postnuptial attorneys have years of experience in helping couples prepare for a more secure future.
What Is the Difference Between a Prenup & a Postnup?
The only difference between a prenuptial and a postnuptial agreement is that a prenuptial agreement is signed before the marriage and a postnuptial agreement is signed after. Both are legal documents that a married couple signs.
The agreement covers important family topics including:
By having clear lines drawn either before or after the marriage ceremony, if you and your spouse ever separate or file for a divorce, the process will be much cleaner.
There are several reasons why people opt for a prenuptial agreement. Some believe they can be more enforceable than postnuptial agreements because it is signed before the marriage when you and your partner are still independent with your own assets. However, postnuptial agreements can be a great option for couples going through big changes, like if one spouse were to have received an inheritance. Our attorneys can work with you to decide which agreement is the best one for your situation.
