Protection Prior To Marriage

More and more engaged couples are deciding to form antenuptial agreements, which are sometimes called prenuptial agreements. These agreements can be created to accomplish many purposes. They are often used to protect the inheritance rights of children from previous marriages. They can also be used to protect premarital assets in situations involving large estates or to protect the property rights of people who are heirs to a family business.

Protecting Your Rights and Assets

An attorney at our firm will review your situation and your goals. This will involve an in-depth discussion and inventory of your property. In creating an antenuptial agreement, it is very important to clearly identify both the premarital assets and premarital debts of each party. Only then can an agreement be drafted that protects you to the fullest extent possible.

Some people hesitate when considering the creation of an agreement, thinking that its creation signifies distrust or lack of commitment. However, a premarital agreement can strengthen a marriage, by eliminating potential sources of conflict or mistrust.

Coodin & Overson, PLLP, will apply our experience and knowledge of the law to create the agreement that enables you to move into your marriage in a positive manner. You will have the confidence of knowing that your interests are fully protected.
