Jefferson County Divorce Lawyers Drafting Prenuptial Agreements in St. Louis, Missouri
Prenuptial Agreements Are Powerful Tools
When creating a prenuptial agreement, it is wise for both parties to have legal counsel. Should the prenuptial agreement ever be challenged in court, a judge is more likely to deem the document valid if attorneys were involved in the negotiation and drafting of the agreement.
At the Law Office of Marta J. Papa, we encourage our clients to carefully consider the details of a prenuptial agreement, because their future rights and obligations may depend upon it.
If you are interested in creating a prenuptial agreement, a skilled attorney should review your documents and guide you through the process. Contact us for a consultation with a Jefferson County divorce lawyer by calling the Law Office of Marta J. Papa at (314) 862-0202 or send us an e-mail.
Who Needs a Prenuptial Agreement?
Prenuptial agreements are not just for the wealthy. People of all income levels and professions can benefit from entering into an agreement prior to marriage. At the Law Office of Marta J. Papa, we know that considering a prenuptial agreement does not mean you believe your marriage will end in divorce. In fact, a prenuptial agreement may actually put your financial concerns to rest and result in a stronger relationship.
What’s in a Prenuptial Agreement?
Prior to a marriage, a couple may draft an agreement that outlines the distribution of their assets in the event that the marriage is dissolved. In order to have the agreement drafted properly, our attorneys advise clients to begin negotiations well in advance of their wedding date. In addition to property division, most prenuptial agreements include factors such as:
- Agreements regarding spousal maintenance.
- Decisions regarding ownership of assets purchased during the marriage.
If you are in the process of ending a marriage, we can also help you in the enforcement of an existing prenuptial agreement.
