We help couples with their prenuptial agreements

by | Feb 1, 2019 | family law, firm news |

Prenuptial agreements don’t really have the reputation of being the most romantic arrangement for marrying couples. Yet many couples find that prenuptial agreements are ideal for their needs. Many couples consist of people who are already financially established and who want to protect their assets for their own children and other interests. This is one of the situations where people may find a prenuptial agreement to be useful.

A few weeks ago, we discussed one of the key features of a prenuptial agreement: whether it can be changed or revoked. It can be if the parties have a written and signed agreement that does so. This means that there is a way to change or revoke a prenuptial agreement if the spouses find that conditions have changed since the prenup was signed.

When couples decide to have a prenuptial agreement, legal representation can be helpful to make sure the parties’ intentions are reflected in the agreement. This is where the Naperville family attorney at Schaffer Family Law, Ltd. can contribute. David N. Schaffer is experienced, and he helps couples draft prenuptial agreements that stand up to scrutiny. He has over three decades of experience helping couples with prenuptial agreements.

High net worth individuals may have a lot to lose in the event of a contested divorce. Prenuptial agreements can protect the interests of both parties, and Mr. Schaffer has a background in helping affluent couples draft airtight prenuptial agreements.

We are happy to meet with potential clients in an initial consultation. We can be reached by phone or online. For more information on the services we provide, please see the prenuptial agreement page on our website.
