Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Passionately Advocating for Your Best Interests

Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements in Worcester, MA

Legal Counsel for Drafting & Enforcing Marital Agreements

It may seem odd to create a plan to divide assets in the event of a divorce even as you are approaching your wedding. But creating a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement may be the right thing to do—you never know what the future will bring, and contingency planning now could protect both of you from potential heartbreak.

Ayvazian Law is a family law firm that helps couples navigate all legal matters when it comes to marriage and pre- or postnuptial agreements. Our team is sensitive and caring to the circumstances of each family we help, and we are capable of handling complex financial considerations.

The Scope of a Pre- or Postnuptial Agreement

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are very similar. The only difference is that a prenuptial agreement is finalized before the marriage and a postnuptial after. Though agreements typically encompass planning in the case of a divorce, they can also govern financial and property issues during a marriage, as well.

Both types of agreements cover a range of legal matters:

  • Control of assets during the marriage, including trusts, savings, inheritance, and real estate
  • Business ownership guidelines, if applicable
  • Property division upon divorce
  • Alimony
  • Pensions, benefits, disability, and insurance
  • Provisions for the future of the estate if one spouse predeceases the other

We especially recommend a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement for couples with considerable or complex financial assets.

How Do I Get a Prenuptial Agreement in Massachusetts?

If you want to create a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, contact our law firm for legal assistance. We can walk you through the process to ensure the agreement meets the requirements in Massachusetts. The following is required for an agreement in Massachusetts:

  • Reasonable and fair – The agreement created must be reasonable and fair both at the time the agreement is created and at the time of the divorce.
  • Full disclosure – Before the agreement is created, the couple must fully disclose their properties, assets, and liabilities. This ensures a legitimate agreement.

Challenging a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement

If the agreement was correctly and considerately drafted, it should serve the couple well through whatever circumstances come. If, however, one spouse was not honest about all their assets, or was pressured or deceived into signing an agreement, a skilled lawyer may be able to help.

At Ayvazian Law, we care about our clients' best interests. We draft marital agreements that are fair, equitable, and ethical, but we are not afraid to challenge agreements that are not up to our standards. If you are facing a divorce and your marital agreement is slanted against you, reach out to our Worcester prenuptial/postnuptial agreement attorney right away.
