When entering into a marriage, it may be a good idea to protect your assets and properties through a contractual agreement. Without a formal marriage contract, almost all property and assets held by either spouse will be split evenly in the event of a divorce. A marriage contract determines how property and assets would be distributed and affected post-marriage, in addition to dealing with matters such as spousal support.
Lawyers play an important role in marriage contracts by ensuring that the terms of the contract are legally binding, and that your rights will be protected after your marriage. It is recommended that both parties receive individual counsel from separate lawyers in order to protect their rights and interests.
Contact our lawyers at Confente Garcea to have a legally binding contract created that protects your interests and is fair for all parties.
