When A Prenuptial Agreement Is On The Table
When couples consider marriage, some overlook discussions on financial matters. A prenuptial agreement may be in order. In New York, prenuptial agreements are enforceable if properly drafted and there’s no evidence of fraud. Couples should consider a prenuptial agreement if:
- You are older and entering a second or third marriage. The two of you likely have built up assets separate from one another. You want to protect those assets and the inheritance of your children and grandchildren from previous marriages.
- You are affluent. Again, you want to protect your investments such as stocks, bonds, 401(k) accounts, real estate, jewelry and collectibles.
- Your soon-to-be spouse has lots of debt. You’re marrying the person, not the debt. So you need to clearly define this in a prenuptial agreement. The debt-free spouse does not want to be dragged down in a spiral of debt, too.
Mr. Bokser will answer your questions, promptly return your calls and emails, and provide the personal attention you need. He is understanding and will help you protect your assets.
