Premarital Agreements

Prenuptial a.k.a. premarital agreements establish spouses’ future property and financial rights and responsibilities in the event of a divorce.  While most husbands and wives don’t contemplate a divorce when marrying, statistically, over 50% of U.S. marriages end in divorce. Prenuptial agreements can greatly minimize the adversarial nature and high cost often associated with divorce.  While prenuptial agreements are often associated with celebrities and wealthy people, these agreements are not only for the wealthy. Anyone who brings personal or business assets to a marriage can benefit.  If you are planning to marry, DBSH’s lawyers have decades of experience in preparing, reviewing and negotiating prenuptial agreements.
