It is becoming increasingly important for couples looking to get married (or those already in a marriage) to ensure that their individual property rights are protected. Through a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, parties can designate separate property and protect their individual assets.
The Law Offices of Jeffrey M. Bloom represents clients looking to draft prenuptial and postnuptial agreements in West New York and New Jersey. To learn more about these legal documents, or your specific legal options, contact a Bergen or Hudson County postnuptial agreement lawyer today. Call (855) 208-3650. We help people in Hudson and Bergen County and all of North Jersey.
A prenuptial agreement is entered into before a couple gets married. A postnuptial agreement is entered into while the couple is married. Our law firm can help you with both.
The concept of a pre or postnuptial agreement is no longer seen as controversial. Marriage is essentially the only contract individuals enter into without taking proper legal precautions to ensure that they are individually protected. If one day the marriage ends in divorce, the pre or postnuptial agreement will serve as a guide in addressing property division and related legal matters.
Many people are waiting longer to get married and have accumulated significant assets individually. Those entering into a second marriage may be especially aware of the importance of protecting their individual property rights. If you are getting married, you should discuss the importance of getting a prenuptial agreement with an attorney. If you are already married, it is not too late. A postnuptial agreement can be drafted during your marriage.
