Pre-Marital Agreements

Pre-Marital Agreements are common for people of all professions, people entering second marriages, and individuals with assets or children from a previous marriage they would like to protect.  At Michling Plaza & Associates, PC, our family law attorneys regularly provide advice and legal representation to people seeking Pre-Marital Agreements prior to marriage.

Pre-Marital Agreements provide a unique forum for couples getting married to develop an economic plan in the event that their marriage should end in divorce.  Pre-Marital Agreements can establish almost any financial arrangement agreed to by the two parties.  Most often, Pre-Marital Agreements are used to protect financial and real estate assets acquired prior to the marriage.  However, they can also be used to safeguard inheritance for children of a prior marriage, protect an interest in an ongoing business, or to avoid litigation in the event of divorce.

Our attorneys draft and review Pre-Marital Agreements and give legal opinions on the enforceability of Pre-Marital Agreements. While most property division matters can be addressed in Pre-Marital Agreements, issues related to child support and child custody are not enforceable.  We work closely with our clients to help them understand the ramifications of each provision of an Pre-Marital Agreement and help them protect their long term interests.
