Montgomery County Marriage Agreement Attorneys

Prenuptial agreements offer many benefits. Not only do these agreements help safeguard assets, they also may be used to preserve inheritance rights and reduce the time, costs and contention of divorce proceedings.

While prenuptial agreements are typically used to offer protection to spouses who enter marriage with a substantial amount of property, individuals without substantial assets can also benefit from prenuptial agreements. A well-drafted prenuptial agreement not only protects your property and financial interests in the event of a future divorce, but may also protect you from the debts of your spouse. A well-drafted prenuptial agreement can also help ensure separate property — property owned by one spouse before the marriage — stays separate and thus is not subject to division as a community asset during divorce.

At Shriver & McLean, L.L.P., our lawyers draft clear and concise prenuptial agreements that protect clients' property and financial interests in the event of a future divorce.

Helping Clients Protect Their Future Financial Interests

Prenuptial agreements often offer protection to only one spouse. Spouses with lower incomes, or those who give up their careers after marriage to care for minor children, may find themselves adversely affected by the terms of a prenuptial agreement. At Shriver & McLean, L.L.P., we provide advice and counsel to clients who are considering signing prenuptial agreements.

Our attorneys thoroughly review the terms of proposed prenuptial agreements to ensure our clients will not be left uncared for should divorce occur. We also review both prospective spouses' property and financial holdings to ensure each party to the agreement has been forthright and disclosed the true nature of their financial circumstances.

Our firm also helps individuals contest the validity of improperly executed prenuptial agreements during the divorce process.
