Lombard Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement Attorney

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement Attorneys Serving DuPage County and Surrounding Cities

When you are getting married, planning for the possibility of a divorce is often the last thing on your mind. Unfortunately, the divorce rate in the United States is high, and it is often necessary to make such plans. Prenuptial agreements, also called prenups, are used to protect the interests of both spouses should the marriage end in divorce. They can also help remove some of the bitterness from a divorce proceeding. These contractual agreements can address numerous issues, and they often become quite complex.

At Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, our attorneys are highly experienced in working with prenuptial (drawn up before the marriage) and postnuptial (drawn up after the marriage) agreements.

Benefits of Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

In the past, these types of marital agreements were mostly used by high-income couples. Today, more and more people are looking to prenups and postnups to protect their interests and the interests of their families. These agreements can address a myriad of issues including:

Those who have children from previous relationships and those who have family inheritances or jointly held businesses often use prenups and postnups to protect the financial interests of their children, relatives, and business partners. For instance, a business owner may use a marital agreement to specify how ownership of the business will be handled during a divorce, ensuring that the business can remain intact. In other cases, a person who has children from a previous marriage or relationship can use a prenup or postnup to state that certain assets will be set aside for those children rather than being subject to division during divorce.

Challenging Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

While marital agreements are effective tools to protect your interests in a divorce, they are not magic bullets. In some cases, the validity of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can be effectively challenged in a divorce. If the agreement was not voluntarily signed or is unconscionable, it can be set aside. A prenup or postnup may also be found to be invalid if the spouses did not fully disclose their assets and other financial information to each other before signing the agreement. Postnuptial agreements are particularly vulnerable to challenges.
