Kalamazoo Prenuptial Agreement Lawyers

Western Michigan Postnuptial Agreement Attorney

Many people think that only the wealthy need prenuptial or postnuptial agreements. However, anyone who has children from a prior marriage or significant assets accumulated before their marriage should strongly consider such an agreement.

At the law firm of Peter A. D' Angelo, PLC, we can assist you in drafting prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. We represent men and women in Portage, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and other communities throughout Western Michigan.

A postnuptial agreement is the same as a prenuptial agreement, except it is entered into after marriage. Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Protecting Your Children

If you have children from a prior marriage, you may consider a prenuptial agreement, a properly drafted estate plan and will or trust. No one would like to see their children disinherited, but that is exactly what can happen if you do not take steps to protect your their interests.  We can assist you in the division of your premarital property. Please contact us for a free consultation to ascertain the best approach for your case.

Protecting Your Separate Property

While your separate property can be excluded from division in a divorce, there are situations when separate property can be considered marital property for a judge to divide. For example, if you owned a business prior to your marriage, your spouse can claim that any increase in the value of your business after marriage is marital property. You could be put in a situation of having to sell your business or take out a loan to pay off your spouse in the event of a future divorce.

What if My Spouse Objects to Signing a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement?

Good communication and full disclosure are keys to successfully drafting a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement. Attempting to spring an agreement on a spouse at the last minute is not only a bad idea for a relationship; it can also make the agreement invalid.

While negotiating an agreement can be difficult, it will be easier to come to an agreement before marital problems arise.
