While few couples enter into marriage with the expectation of Divorce, it is not uncommon for couples to make legal arrangements to protect their individual interests if divorce does becomes necessary in the future. Prenuptial or ante-nuptial agreements are written contracts used to identify individual assets and specify how all assets will be divided in the event of a divorce. At the law firm of Mulyk, Laho & Mack, LLC, our attorneys have experience drafting and modifying prenuptial agreements to represent the best interests and wishes of our clients.

Prenuptial agreements can address a wide variety of issues. Each couple will have different specific needs to address. If either spouse owns a business, for example, a prenuptial agreement can be crafted to prevent it from being divided as part of a divorce. Prenuptial agreements can also be used to protect assets meant to be inherited by children from a previous relationship. Additionally, they are often used to limit the amount of spousal support that can be granted in a divorce decree.
Limitations of Prenuptial Agreements
In general, a prenuptial agreement can be used to delineate virtually any financial provisions to which the parties agree. Some issues such as those pertaining to child custody, however, cannot be specified within a prenuptial agreement. Our attorneys are extremely knowledgeable about the intricacies of prenuptial agreements and are experts in crafting contracts that are fair and enforceable.
