Marital Contracts Professionals in New York State, Long Island & Elsewhere
If you have substantial personal wealth, high divorce statistics can make entering into a marriage very unsettling. Even though you are on cloud nine heading into the marriage, what if the future holds separation or divorce?
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements in New York
In the state of New York, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are used to cover the rights and responsibilities during the marriage of two people. If the couple happens to filing for divorce, the agreements can help with the division of property and spousal maintenance issues.
These agreements are particularly beneficial when you:
- Are entering into a marriage that is not your first
- Have children from a previous marriage
- Have significant assets, property, and investments
Our New York City prenuptial and postnuptial agreement attorneys are skilled and knowledgeable in preparing and executing these marital contracts.
Benefits of a Marital Contract
There are many benefits that come from creating a marital contract. Of primary importance is the ability to decide for yourself how your property and assets will be handled as opposed to having it dictated by the defaults of New York State law.
Some benefits of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements include:
- Protecting the inheritance of children or grandchildren from a previous marriage
- Protecting you from assuming the obligations of your spouse and his or her debt
- Protecting full ownership of any business or medical practice that you may own
- Limiting the amount of alimony you will need to pay your spouse in a divorce
- Determining the decision-making involved in marriage and how couples will share in responsibilities

Keep in mind that if a marital contract does not meet state requirements, it can be nullified.
