Preparing Effective New Jersey Prenuptial Agreements

Drafting and litigation of workable ante-nuptial contracts

It may seem cynical to think about divorce before marriage, but in today's world, it really is a sound idea. At Murano & Roth LLC, we have seen the uncertainty and wrangling that couples endure when their marriages unravel and they had no prenuptial agreements protecting their interests. Pre-nuptial agreements are an important tool in helping to prevent disputes in a variety of situations, such as when:

  • One or both spouses bring significant assets to a marriage, such as trust funds, real estate, investments and business interests
  • Couples enter a second marriage, each spouse with significant assets. The agreement identifies separate assets and protects the inheritance rights of children from prior marriages.
  • People want to protect assets acquired in the future
  • A spouse wants to reduce potential liability

Prenuptial agreements even help after death. They can guide executors in the distribution of assets and protect property from creditors.

Drafting solid premarital agreements that withstand challenges

Our divorce attorneys customize prenuptial agreements that set out each party's assets, debts and property rights, and settle how property and alimony are to be handled in the event of a divorce or death. We review proposed agreements for loopholes or clauses that might pose challenges in a divorce.

We have the knowledge and trial experience to draft, review and litigate premarital agreements. Each prenuptial contract is handled with discretion and understanding. We know a lawyer must maintain a careful balance between the need for a protective agreement and a couple's commitment to the marriage.

The stakes can be too high to count on your spouse to do what is right when emotions are running high. A premarital contract protects you, your spouse and your children in unfortunate situations.

When disputes do arise, we use our significant family law and litigation experience to protect your interests and achieve the best solution through negotiation or trial.
