Many couples find themselves litigating far less in the event of divorce by determining the treatment of their assets in advance of their marriage through a prenuptial agreement.

  • You are about to marry someone who has significant liabilities
  • You have children from a prior relationship
  • You are the beneficiary of a trust, or a large inheritance or gift is expected

  • You had a prior marriage
