Wheaton Prenuptial and Post Nuptial Agreement Lawyer

Lisle Premarital Agreement Lawyers

Family Lawyers for Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements Serving DuPage County and Surrounding Areas

If you are preparing for your upcoming marriage, a divorce is probably the furthest thing from your mind. While it may be uncomfortable to think about the possibility of a divorce, legal separation, or the death of a spouse, it may be in your best interest to draft an equitable, legally-sound prenuptial agreement before you say "I do." A prenuptial agreement can help you avoid contentious disputes if the unexpected should occur, and the skilled team at Goostree Law Group can help you create an agreement that gives you the peace of mind that you deserve. If you are already married, we can assist you in drafting a postnuptial agreement to protect your rights both now and in the future.

Customized Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements in Lisle

No two relationships are exactly the same. Therefore, a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement must be personalized to match your unique circumstances. Our attorneys have more than 80 years of combined legal experience, which means that we are equipped to help you with all aspects of your agreement, including:

  • Addressing marital and separate property: Your agreement can be used to establish what property would and would not be subject to division in the event of a divorce. This could be especially helpful if you own a business or complex real estate investments;
  • Dividing assets: You can decide in advance how you and your spouse will split your assets if divorce becomes a reality. Your agreement may include retirement savings, business holdings, and specific pieces of jewelry or artwork;
  • Maintenance considerations: You have the opportunity to address spousal support concerns in your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. As long as your agreement is still reasonable at the time of your divorce, it will be honored by the court;
  • Inheritance rights: If you have children from a previous relationship, you can use your marital agreement to specify their inheritance rights. This is one way of ensuring that family heirlooms or other intended assets are passed down from one generation to the next.

Prenuptial agreements are especially important in situations where one or both spouses have substantial assets prior to the marriage. Such agreements can also be useful when one or both spouses have children from previous relationships. Our lawyers can help you draft an agreement to give you the security you need as you look to the future.

Aurora Lawyers for Challenging a Prenuptial Agreement

While prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are useful when they are carefully constructed, there are times when it might be appropriate to challenge the validity of such agreements. For example, if the agreement was signed under coercion or duress, the court may set the agreement aside. The court may also refuse to enforce an agreement that is too one-sided.

At Goostree Law Group, our skilled attorneys handle all types of litigation regarding prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. We will review your agreement and assist you in understanding your available options. Whether you wish to challenge the validity of an agreement or your spouse has filed a motion to have your existing agreement set aside, we can help you protect your rights.
