While no one gets married intending to divorce, it is a possibility for which proper planning can be tremendously helpful.

What Can Marital Agreements Cover?

Generally, marital agreements deal with a spouse’s property and debts. They can act to classify community and separate property, specify financial rights, allocate debts, and help resolve potential conflicts before they arise. These agreements can include numerous types of assets and debts.

  • The Family Home
  • Shared Bank Accounts
  • Rental Properties
  • Business Interests
  • Mortgages and Loans
  • Artworks and Collectibles

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Questions

  • Is My Marital Agreement Enforceable?

    Answer

    While a marital agreement can be a helpful tool in the case of a divorce, a signed document doesn’t guarantee its enforceability. There are numerous requirements an agreement must meet to be upheld in court. If you have an existing agreement, it is highly recommended that you review its terms with an attorney from our firm.

  • What If My Spouse Is Hiding Assets?

    Answer

    The accurate reporting of property is a vital component in the distribution of property. However, a spouse may not always be playing by the rules. It is against the law to attempt to conceal or hide assets and the act may invalidate terms of an existing marital agreement.

  • Should I Hire an Attorney?

    Answer

    The terms of a marital agreement can affect you for years if not decades to come. With so much on the line, you can’t afford to leave anything to chance. Experienced legal advocates like those at our firm can help you protect your interests every step of the way. Call us today and discover how we can help.

  • Will a Marital Agreement Expedite a Divorce?

    Answer

    As valid terms included in an existing agreement typically do not need to be fought over in the courtroom, a well-drafted document can help to reduce setbacks and areas of conflict in a divorce. However, this will not negate the waiting periods or residency requirements associated with the dissolution of marriage.
