Seeking a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement on Long Island?

The main difference between prenuptial and postnuptial agreements lies in the fact that a prenup is written before the marriage, while a postnup is written after. Both are considered valid in court, unless unreasonably slanted toward one spouse's favor. In either case, these agreements can set the standard for resolving conflict throughout the course of a marriage.

Factors considered in a prenup include:

  • Property possession
  • Estate planning (beneficiaries, etc.)
  • Responsibility for debt and bills
  • Alimony (in the case of divorce)
  • Other significant matters

It is never too late to write a nuptial agreement. If you missed the opportunity to write a prenup before marriage, you can take advantage of the same opportunities with a postnuptial agreement at any time during the course of your marriage. Additionally, you can modify the terms of a prenuptial agreement whenever the need arises. With the legal team at Edwards & Rockmore, P.C., you can take confidence that your interests will be preserved and your well-being protected.
