Prior to marriage, a couple may enter into a prenuptial agreement. Such an agreements gives you the ability to avoid the normal operation of Pennsylvania’s equitable distribution law. It allows you and your spouse to decide for yourselves how to handle the division of marital property upon divorce, if one should occur.
If a Pennsylvania prenuptial agreement does not meet the requirements of the law or fails to address the particular situation you and your spouse are in, it may be help unenforceable by the court. A cookie-cutter prenuptial agreement has little or no value. I can help you form a prenuptial agreement that addresses your situation, specifically, and that meets the standards required by law. This can, in turn, make the divorce process a much less painful and uncertain process.
In some cases, couples may realize the need for a legal understanding only after they have gotten married. In this case, a postnuptial agreement may be the right solution. These contracts are formed after marriage with the intent to formalize the understanding of what is and is not marital property. If property should not be subject to the standard equitable distribution process, there should be a postnuptial agreement making that clear. I provide thoughtful counsel and representation to clients who wish to take steps to protect their new business venture, safeguard family property or inheritances, or exclude a property purchase from distribution by properly executing a postnuptial agreement.
