Creating A Sound Prenuptial Agreement

For many couples, a prenuptial agreement is a prudent financial maneuver. You may have every intention of being married forever, but unforeseen events can happen. When they do, it is important to protect your interests.

I am attorney John "Jack" C. Maginnis, III, and I have more than 35 years of experience helping individuals navigate complex family law issues. Serving clients in the Washington, D.C., metro area, I understand how to draft a prenuptial agreement that will hold up to scrutiny in court. If you are seeking measures to protect your financial future against an unexpected marriage dissolution, turn to Maginnis Law Office for help.

The Advantage Of A Comprehensive Plan

In the absence of a prenuptial agreement, divorce can become an especially costly pursuit. Without such a document, your assets could be subject to rigid marital property laws. A prenuptial agreement can help you to circumvent an impractical division of assets. Additionally, a well-executed prenup can provide protections with regard to:

  • Inheritance protection: If you have a sizable inheritance, a prenuptial agreement can shield those assets from property division.
  • Spousal support limitation: A prenuptial agreement allows you to outline a future alimony figure should you decide to enter divorce proceedings.
  • Business considerations: If you own a business, a divorce can have serious consequences. A prenuptial agreement can help you preserve your business interests.
  • Provisions for your children: With a prenuptial agreement, you can protect the financial stability for your children from a previous marriage.

Financial circumstances can change during the course of a marriage. If you did not enter into a prenuptial agreement prior to marrying, there are postnuptial documents that can be used to achieve similar objectives. A seasoned divorce attorney can help you design an agreement that is right for you.
