In this day and age, there is a steady stream of studies and news items that cite the high divorce rate in the United States. To protect your assets in case of a divorce, you need to have a lawyer create either a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement for you. This is especially true if you earn the majority of your family's income. Without a prenuptial agreement in place, your spouse could end up with half of family's assets even if he or she did less than half the work to obtain those assets.
At The LaVergne Law Group, we draw on our years of experience working with divorcing clients to offer effective and affordable representation. We can help at all stages of a marriage or divorce, from drafting a prenup or postnup all the way to advocating on your behalf in divorce court.
Helping You Protect Your Assets
If you are considering a prenuptial agreement, attorney Malcolm LaVergne can walk you through all of the ways a prenuptial agreement can benefit you. He is also readily available to answer your questions about asset protection agreements. Some of the common issues that he discusses with clients include:
- Even if you got married without a premarital agreement, you have options. A postnuptial agreement can be created even after you are married and can offer the same level of asset protection as a prenup.
- If divorce becomes necessary, these agreements can remove a lot of the anxiety surrounding the divorce process because issues such as asset distribution are already decided by what is in the prenup or postnup.
- These agreements can be limited by factors such as time. For example, an agreement could be set to expire if the marriage lasts for at least 10 years. At that point, assets could be split 50-50.
We strongly advise that everyone has a pre- or post-nuptial agreement in place. We can use our advanced legal skills to negotiate and draft an agreement that will protect your assets should your marriage dissolve in the future.
