Creating a fair, enforceable prenuptial agreement gives prospective husbands and wives the ability to avoid protracted disputes about asset division and spousal support should they divorce. At my Sterling Heights firm, Dawson Family Law, PLLC, I help clients in throughout Michigan and other States communicate openly and agree on documents that give each party a sense of security as they enter marriage together. If you are already married and want to make similar arrangements, postnuptial agreements are also permitted in Michigan as long as the terms don’t encourage divorce. Whatever your specific needs and concerns might be, I will use my more than 40 years of family law experience to safeguard your interests with skill and sensitivity.
With couples marrying later in life, resulting in many blended families, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements have taken on added importance. Spouses with significant assets and/or obligations to existing children can clarify how wills, retirement accounts and other items are to be treated. These documents help husbands and wives make informed decisions about their future and their well-being. Before you make a major commitment, my firm can explain pertinent issues such as:
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements do not cover every aspect of a divorce. Child custody and support determinations must be set forth based on the circumstances before the court at the time the marriage is dissolved. In a free initial consultation, I’ll give you individualized counsel on the scope of your potential marital agreement and how it can save you time, money and stress should the marriage end in divorce.
