For years, a stereotype existed about couples who had prenuptial agreements. They were viewed as not having faith that their marriage could last, or that one spouse or another was in it for the wrong reasons. Thankfully, today these agreements are being recognized as useful tools to help people plan what should happen if the marriage ends.
New London lawyer Bruce A. Chamberlain has 30 years of experience handling family law issues, and in that time has drafted and reviewed a large number of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. If you would like to have a prenup created, he can help. Similarly, if you have been asked to sign a prenup and are unsure, he can provide advice. If you are getting divorced and want to challenge an existing prenup, he can advocate for you accordingly.
Saving Time and Money
A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is useful because it allows the parties to decide how certain divorce issues should be decided, without the need for expense and lengthy litigation. Our New London prenuptial agreement lawyer creates contracts that address items such as:
- Property division
- Child support
- Assigning debts
- Issues involving children from previous marriages
A Valid Marital Agreement
In Connecticut, there are a few conditions that must be met in order for your prenup to be considered valid. Essentially, each party must sign the document voluntarily, and each party must disclose all of his or her assets.
