Pre-Nuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements
Many couples, before getting married, opt for Pre-Nuptial Agreements. These are contracts signed by both parties listing their assets and how their pre-marital assets, along with assets acquired during their marriage, will be divided in the event of death or divorce. The contract is legal and for the most part enforceable. They are very popular in second marriages, especially when one party brings a lot of assets into the marriage.
Many people are of the belief that they do not need an attorney to review a Pre-Nuptial Agreement prepared by their prospective spouse. The fact that they do not have an attorney is not a defense to the enforceability of the Agreement. Should the marriage break down several years later, they may realize that their options are limited. The attorneys at Boyer, Dawson & St. Pierre have been preparing Pre and Post-Nuptial Agreements for many years. They have also been in the courtroom defending and successfully challenging Pre-Nuptial Agreement.
