Post-Nuptial Agreement Lawyer, Massachusetts
Do You Need a Postnuptial Agreement?
Postnuptial agreements are written legal and binding documents between two people who are already married. It provides for a pre-arranged division of assets if the parties later divorce. They must be properly drafted and they are strictly scrutinized by the divorce court. Some of factors that must be in place include separate counsel for the parties, free from fraud or coercion at the time of inception, a full disclose of all assets, a waiver of rights under divorce law, and the agreement must be fair and reasonable in the context of the marital estate.
Because postnuptial or marital agreements in Massachusetts must be strictly scrutinized by the court before it may be sanctioned, it is critical to work with an experienced lawyer who will ensure all legal requirements are met in the drafting and execution of the agreement.
