Finding the “right” one can put you on cloud nine, but risking all that you’ve worked so hard for can send you to Chapter 11. If you have substantial assets or children from a prior marriage to protect, you owe it to yourself to consider a Prenuptial Agreement.
Donald and Ivana Trump had one. Liz Taylor and construction worker Larry Fortensky had one. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have one. Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman have one.
But, prenuptial agreements aren’t used only by celebrities. For example, we created one for Mark Malke, who owns an automobile dealership. It’s in effect today.
We create strong premarital agreements. We’ve created a lot. They are all effective today, and have never been broken. We’ve been in contested courtroom battles over contested antenuptial and postnuptial agreements with great success.
A premarital or prenuptial agreement is a written declaration of two people contemplating marriage and provides, among other things, for the rights and responsibilities with respect to support and the disposition of property at divorce, separation or death of the parties.
If you are a high net worth individual with a high level of assets, or a professional (or the spouse of one), or an entrepreneur (or the spouse of one) who owns one or more businesses, then you may be interested in creating a prenuptial agreement. Call us personally, any time.
