Contemplating Marriage

Contemplating marriage?

Our family law experts can help you protect your family business, provide for your existing children, or accomplish other goals.

It used to be that prenuptial agreements were perceived as distasteful, insulting, and used as a tool only by the financially powerful partner to protect his or her interests. Things are different today. Modern couples seek prenuptial agreements to not only protect their respective assets, but also to establish financial commitments during the marriage, and to predetermine financial outcomes in the event of a divorce. Objectively determining what is fair and reasonable when the couple is happily partnered, is, obviously, much easier to accomplish before marriage rather than at the time of an actual divorce. If you and your partner are considering having a prenuptial agreement, it is very important that you meet with attorneys well in advance of your wedding. For more information regarding prenuptial agreements, please see Premarital and Post-Nuptial Agreements.

DISCLAIMERContacting Ford Family Law, PC (“the Firm”), or any of our attorneys through our website does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and the Firm. You become a client of the Firm when (1) the Firm investigates for possible conflicts of interest that would prevent us from representing you, and (2) you sign a written engagement agreement that details the scope of the Firm’s engagement, the fee the Firm will charge, and other relevant matters. Normally, this process takes several days. Therefore, if your matter is urgent, you should not wait for our response to your inquiry. You should instead promptly find and engage another lawyer or law firm so that your rights will be protected.
