Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreement Lawyer

A prenuptial agreement essentially defines a couple's assets as "yours" or "mine" for purposes divorce. Without such an agreement, assets owned prior to marriage may be vulnerable in divorce proceedings.

Hopefully your "prenup" is never invoked, but identifying separate property eliminates many conflicts if the marriage is someday dissolved and streamlines the divorce process. Donnelly LLC can knowledgeably draft or review your premarital or postmarital documents.

Our lawyers handle prenuptial and postnuptial agreements for clients in Camden County, Burlington County and Gloucester County, whether you are seeking to protect your assets or whether you have been asked to sign a prenuptial.

Protecting Assets Brought To The Marriage

A prenuptial agreement is entered prior to the wedding. A postnuptial is entered at any time during the marriage. You may be a candidate for a prenuptial/postnuptial agreement if:

  • You own a business, a house or other substantial assets
  • You have children from a previous marriage
  • Both of you are high earners with promising careers
  • You have received an inheritance or lawsuit settlement

Prenuptials can stipulate distribution of property and may dictate alimony payments or a cash buyout. However, prenuptials cannot dictate matters of child custody or child support.

Under New Jersey law, these agreements must be entered into freely, without coercion or misrepresentation. It is highly advised to have an attorney create or review your contract to ensure that it is fair and that it protects your interests.
