Handling The Creation, Review and Negotiation of Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a personal choice between soon to be spouses. It is a legally binding contract that often strengthens the bond of couples, but it does have a poor social stigma. Many people use these agreements in second marriages to protect children from the first marriage. However, they are just as useful in first marriages. Rhode Island does permit similar agreements to be entered even after the wedding.

At the Law Office of Steven J. Hirsch, Esq., we believe a trusting relationship is built on honesty, integrity and full disclosure. A prenuptial agreement allows each partner to have knowledge of the assets, liabilities and income of the other. There are no financial secrets, and both of you are protected with a plan to manage debt, assets and property.

If you become separated or end up filing for divorce someday, there are no surprises. We can discuss the pros and cons of prenuptial agreements in entirety with you and your spouse.

Informed Counsel And Guidance

Steve has more than 30 years of legal experience and more than 18 years as a couple's mediator. He can help you understand and evaluate your options and make informed decisions. If you do ever divorce or separate, you will be happy to have made a plan upfront.

Prenuptial agreements make clear the rights and responsibilities of each party. Costly and lengthy arguments about finances can be avoided, and you can protect assets, including:

  • Premarital equity or property
  • Gifts or inheritance not jointly held
  • Property acquired after separation
  • Other excluded property according to the prenup

Any other assets, property and debt acquired during your marriage will be evaluated and divided using several factors in litigation or mediation. If a property settlement agreement cannot be reached in a divorce, the court will make determinations for you.

We will help you evaluate your long-term financial goals and make the best possible decision for you and your spouse.

"A marriage may be based on love, but its foundation is based on numerous factors. Financial differences are at the root of a high number of family disputes and breakups. Before the marriage, people should strengthen their foundation by discussing their finances and consider a prenuptial agreement for the harmony to last longer."- Attorney Hirsch
