- Premarital agreements: Premarital and prenuptial agreements (or prenups) can be a valuable aid for couples preparing for marriage. This document can be used to clarify and organize all of the assets that each party brings to the marriage. Assets such as retirement accounts, homes, cars, antique collections and stocks can be listed on a premarital agreement. This document can also be used to accurately identify nonmarital assets in the event of a divorce.
- Property settlement agreements: A property settlement agreement is developed during a divorce proceeding. This agreement is a compromise between both parties regarding the equitable split of both assets and debts. Often, a premarital agreement is used to identify nonmarital assets — assets that do not need to be split. The remaining time in divorce mediation, then, can be spent focusing on dividing marital assets.
- Spousal support: Spousal support, spousal maintenance or alimony is money paid from one party in the divorce to another party. Several factors can be used in determining the amount and duration of spousal support, such as the length of the marriage, the fidelity of the spouses, the custody arrangement and any financial sacrifices that one spouse made during the course of the marriage.
These factors can seem complex, but an experienced attorney can efficiently guide you through each of these stages. Whether you are preparing a premarital agreement prior to your marriage, or you are attempting to divide your assets and debts during a divorce, our firm can help.
