Warning: Don't Sign That Prenuptial Agreement Until You Speak With Me!


As a family law attorney/mediator for more than 35 years, I have reviewed and drafted thousands of prenuptial agreements.

Many couples are getting ready to walk down the aisle this Fall. If you are considering a prenuptial agreement or your fiancé has just handed one to you, don’t sign it until it has been reviewed and you are protected! Call me!

Often a couple about to enter a marriage will go to an attorney to have a prenuptial agreement drafted.

A prenuptial agreement forces couples to have in-depth conversations about uncomfortable, but significant marital issues. Just a few important topics that are brought to the forefront include money matters, in what religion you plan to raise your children, family business ownership, and planning for inheritance.

These agreements can be fair when the people are reasonable. Speak now or forever hold your peace. You will learn a lot about your spouse’s generosity and reasonableness from what’s proposed in a prenuptial agreement.

It’s important to keep in mind whoever selects the attorney to draft the agreement may have an advantage. That is why the other party should take the draft to an attorney of their choosing to carefully review the agreement and protect their interests. It’s important to discuss and be aware of what a spouse would be entitled to in the event of a divorce without such an agreement and what you could be giving up.

When a client asks me to review a prenuptial agreement that has been drafted by an attorney chosen by their partner, I look very carefully not only at what has been included, but also at what has been excluded!

When I review prenuptial agreements, I often find some very important issues are left out:

  • estate rights
  • spousal support
  • marital property
  • share of a business or professional practice;
  • income during marriage
  • possession of the marital residence

It’s also important to know what you as a spouse would normally be entitled to in a divorce and what you are being asked to give up in the agreement.

If you are about to sign a prenuptial agreement and want a thorough review to ensure your rights are protected in case of divorce, call me.

I have been drafting and reviewing prenuptial agreements for more than 35 years and can ensure you are protected.
