Prenuptial Agreements Spare Couples From Future Legal Complications
When a couple divorces in Wisconsin, they must divide property according to divorce laws – even if a spouse owned an asset prior to the marriage. This can lead to a difficult divorce with both sides arguing about the valuation and allocation of marital property.
At Burbach & Stansbury S.C., our Wisconsin family law attorneys have vast experience negotiating and drafting both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. We help individuals avoid unwanted consequences of Wisconsin property laws long before they arise. Your future financial security is well worth the time and attention.
If you need help negotiating or drafting any of these agreements, call us at 262-257-9110.
You Have Many Ways To Customize Your Agreement
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements serve the same purpose. Both contracts aim to protect the income and assets of parties, as well as empower the parties to have control over their financial futures, in the unfortunate event that the marriage ends or upon the death of a party.
You can determine several aspects of your relationship and finances, including:
- Division of assets, including real estate, businesses, stocks, life insurance, vehicles and other valuable items
- Division of debts and other ongoing expenses, such as mortgages
- Potential awards of maintenance in case of separation or divorce
- Preservation of gifted or inherited assets
If you are already married and have just learned about the benefits of these agreements, it is not too late. A postnuptial agreement can accomplish the same goals as a prenuptial agreement, but it is drafted and signed after your wedding. You can consult with our lawyers to create a fair contract that suits your needs both as individuals and as a couple.
