Pre-Nuptial Agreement and an Post-Nuptial Agreements
At Napier Law, we are committed to protecting the rights and financial interest of our clients. Whether you are contemplating marriage or have already said your I Do’s, a pre-nuptial agreement or an post-nuptial agreement may be necessary to ensure that your assets are well protected. Under Massachusetts law, couples may set the terms of their marriage through a pre-nuptial or ante-nuptial agreement. Such terms will be in effect during a divorce as long as specific procedures were followed in drafting the agreement. It is extremely important to contact a lawyer experienced in drafting these agreements to make sure that your pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement is consistent with the laws of the state.
If you have been asked to sign a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement, it is highly recommended that you consult with an attorney to make sure that you completely understand the agreement and the rights that you may be waiving by signing. Also, it is important to note that the agreement is more likely to be considered legally valid if the parties consulted separate attorneys prior to signing.
