Wheaton Divorce Planning Attorney

DuPage County Law Firm Assisting With Premarital and Postnuptial Agreements

Warrenville Marital Agreement Attorney

Anyone planning to get married is making a major decision that will permanently alter the landscape of their life. Marriage requires couples to unify nearly every aspect of their lives, and no matter how long the marriage lasts, it will affect both spouses' finances and personal well-being, as well as their relationship with children and other family members, for as long as they live.

When you are in the midst of wedding plans, the possible end of your marriage is likely the last thing on your mind. However, it can be a good idea to take a step back and consider what might happen in the case of divorce and make sure you will be financially protected if that ever occurs. The experienced family law attorneys at Anderson and Associates, P.C. can work with you to create a fair prenuptial agreement that will provide you with financial security, and we can also help you plan for a wide variety of other situations as well.

Providing Security for Your Future

With over 30 years of experience working with couples in every stage of marriage and divorce planning, our attorneys understand the legal requirements for drafting marital agreements and litigating any disputes over these agreements. We can provide legal assistance with:

  • Prenuptial Agreements - When one or both spouses own significant assets, or either spouse has children from a previous relationship, a premarital agreement can protect these assets and ensure that children are provided for if the marriage ends in divorce or one or both spouses die.
  • Postnuptial Agreements - Sometimes, spouses who are already married plan to make significant decisions that will affect both parties' finances, such as starting a business or making a large investment. In these cases, a postmarital agreement can provide protection to both spouses by specifying ownership of a business if the marriage ends in divorce or protecting the marital home in the case of business failure.
  • Cohabitation Agreements - This type of agreement allows couples who decide to live together without getting married to protect their financial interests, specify their privileges and responsibilities, and clarify parental roles for any children of either party.
  • Prenuptial/Postnuptial Litigation - When parties disagree over the terms of a premarital or postmarital agreement, the matter may need to be decided in court. Our attorneys can represent you to contest or defend an agreement, ensuring that your rights are protected.
