Baltimore Pre- & Postnuptial Agreement Lawyer
You Can Prevent Divorce Litigation
To avoid costly divorce litigation, many couples choose to create prenuptial or postnuptial agreements. For individuals with significant or complex assets, these agreements can be especially valuable. People who are entering a subsequent marriage may also choose a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement to protect assets for their children.
Both parties need representation to protect their rights when negotiating prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Whether you are the party seeking the agreement or being asked to sign it, our Baltimore pre- and postnuptial agreement attorney can protect your rights. Alice G. Pinderhughes has experience with prenuptial and postnuptial agreements for individuals with modest assets as well as for professionals and business owners with considerable assets.
Protect Your Rights And Assets
Prenuptial agreements are legal contracts that detail the assets and debts of each party prior to the marriage. There must be full and fair disclosure of all assets and debts from each party for the agreement to be legally binding. When appropriate, we search for hidden assets before negotiating and drafting an agreement.
Marital agreements specify the property rights of each party if the marriage ends in divorce. They can also establish each party’s spousal support/alimony rights and obligations. Child custody and support may be addressed in prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, but they may be modified by the court if the couple divorces.
Postnuptial agreements function much like prenuptial agreements, but they are drafted after the couple is married. You may use a postnuptial agreement to protect new assets you acquire during the marriage as well.
