Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
Helping Families Plan For Their Financial Future
When two people are considering marriage, no one wants to think about the possibility of ending up in a stressful and contentious divorce. A substantial percentage of marriages end in divorce, however, and taking measures to protect your financial security before and during a marriage can help you avoid a difficult court battle later on.
I am attorney Michael E. Eisenberg, and I assist clients in protecting their financial well-being and avoiding complex property division by negotiating, drafting, reviewing and enforcing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. With more than 25 years of experience, I provide professional legal representation with the exceptional client service that is the hallmark of my firm.

Prior to marriage, a couple may enter into a prenuptial agreement, which allows the parties to “opt out” of Pennsylvania’s equitable distribution law and determine for themselves how their marital property will be divided in the event of a divorce.
If a Pennsylvania prenuptial agreement is not drafted properly, or if it fails to account for the unique circumstances of the parties, it can be declared unenforceable by the court. A cookie-cutter prenuptial agreement has little or no value. I assist clients in preparing prenuptial agreements that seek to thoroughly address every potential concern that might arise in an effort to simplify the divorce process for all involved.
A postnuptial agreement is a contract spouses make after they are married; it allows the parties to agree that certain property or assets acquired during the marriage will not be considered “marital property” that is subject to equitable distribution in the event of divorce. I provide thoughtful counsel and representation to clients who wish to protect new businesses, inheritances or newly purchased property by executing postnuptial agreements.
