Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys

Protecting and Providing through a Prenuptial Agreement

The financial issues that arise when a couple decides to marry, particularly when couples remarry or marry later in life, sometimes require advanced planning to protect the parties’ assets in the event of unforeseen circumstances such as death or divorce. A well-drafted prenuptial agreement can accomplish just that – protection. The Family Law Team at Owen & Owens will assist clients in drafting an agreement that suits their individual needs and expectations.

Things to Consider in a Prenuptial Agreement:

  • Listing of all assets, liabilities, income, and expectations of gifts and inheritances
  • Handling premarital debts
  • Determining what happens to premarital property in reference to appreciation, gains, income, rentals, and dividends
  • Determining who will own the marital residence and any secondary homes
  • Specifying the status of gifts, inheritances, and trusts
  • Determining what will happen to each type of property, whether jointly or individually owned, such as real estate, artwork and jewelry
  • Clarifying alimony, maintenance and spousal support provisions
  • Deciding on medical, disability, life and/or long-term care insurance coverage
  • Detailing death benefits
