Prenups & Postnups Offer Long-Term Protection Of Your Assets.
Wharton Aldhizer & Weaver drafts prenups and postnups to protect your assets and children before or after marriage. Our experienced professionals tactfully facilitate discussions and craft documents to clearly define the desired outcome after divorce or the death of you or your partner.
Prenups are written before marriage to clarify the division of assets in the case of divorce. They can be used to protect the financial assets of children born from a previous marriage if their parent passes away.
Postnups are written after marriage and operate similarly to prenups. Keep in mind that once you marry, most property and assets become marital property – unless you sign a prenup. You and your spouse will have to negotiate the division of those and future assets.
We Help You Prepare For The Unexpected.
Prenups and postnups are practical documents that protect you and your spouse if things don’t go as planned. Clear the air and start the discussion for a more honest and open relationship. We recommend prenups and postnups to the following people and for the following situations:
If you or your partner have a large estate, inheritance, trust, or other significant assets, prenups and postnups keep those in your name.
For individuals entering their second, third, or even fourth marriage, pre and postnups define the allocation of your assets for you and any children from a previous marriage.
If you own a profitable business, your spouse may be entitled to a percentage of your profits if the marriage ends in divorce. Pre and postups protect those profits.
