Leech Tishman has a depth of experience assisting clients with both pre- and post-marital agreements. Our attorneys always recommend that individuals entering into a marriage with existing assets should safeguard their wealth by setting forth financial expectations in the event of a separation or divorce.
While the discussion of a premarital agreement can be uncomfortable, these agreements prevent unnecessary legal disputes and expenses over contested assets. Our skilled attorneys are trained to analyze your case and provide you with a recommendation regarding the provisions of these agreements. It is our goal to draft legally appropriate pre- and post-marital agreements that leave little room for ambiguity or uncertainty.
While we recommend that clients enter into premarital agreements to establish financial expectations before entering into the contract of marriage, we are also able to assist in the preparation of post-marital agreements. These documents provide both parties with clearly defined financial safeguards, lay out the financial expectations both during the marriage and in the event of divorce, and provide clients with a more efficient route to separation.
