Prenuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements

When couples get married, they acquire substantial rights and responsibilities under the laws of New York. If they divorce or die married, they are subject to the laws of New York, including the equitable distribution laws and the laws preventing a person from disinheriting his or her spouse. We explain these default rules to couples embarking on marriage, and help people who want to make different arrangements for what happens to their property in the event of divorce or death. In addition to helping clients with prenuptial agreements, we can help already married clients with post-nuptial agreements providing how they want their property distributed in event of death or divorce.
