Prenuptials & Postnuptial Agreements

Providence Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Attorney

Protecting Your Property & Assets in the Event of a Divorce

While some individuals may say asking for a prenuptial agreement before getting married is unromantic or wrong, others often consider it as a form of insurance for a rainy day. By choosing to have a prenuptial agreement drafted before you say "I do," you are allowing yourself the freedom of enjoying your marriage without stressing that your spouse will squander all of your assets the moment the relationship ends. This is not to say that once you obtain a prenuptial agreement that you and your spouse have to get a divorce eventually, it will just give you the peace of mind knowing that if it happened your assets are protected. The same goes for a postnuptial agreement, though this is done once you and your spouse are already married.
