PRE- AND POST- NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS

Avoiding the Pitfalls,
Protecting Your Rights and Assets
When challenged as part of a divorce, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements have often been invalidated by the courts. Why? Essentially, a valid prenuptial or mid-marriage agreement requires four things.
First, each person must have their own independent counsel. Second, there must be a full disclosure of all assets, property and debts. Third, the agreement must not have been made under duress (e.g., on the eve of the wedding or under a similar type of pressure). And fourth, there must be some fairness in the end result — it cannot leave one spouse destitute and abandoned.
Attorney Christine O’Sullivan represents women and men, whether they are individuals who are seeking a well-drafted prenuptial agreement or have been asked to sign one by their fiancé or spouse.
