As families become more aware of how clear rules and guidelines can help their families succeed and emotionally flourish, postnuptial and prenuptial agreements have gained in popularity. Clients understand that being able to proactively identify and manage potentially difficult situations before they arise often helps a marriage succeed.
Instead of attempting to resolve a dispute in the middle of heated emotional confrontations, a conflict can be nipped in the bud by a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.
Betsy A. Fischer, LLC, has more than 20 years of experience assisting families on a case-by-case basis with their most difficult and complex personal problems. We understand family conflict and how to manage it effectively. We will gladly help you understand whether and how a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can enhance your family’s life.
One of the more common scenarios we assist clients with is using a prenuptial agreement to terminate the community property regime. Terminating the community property regime means that the property of each spouse belongs to that spouse only, not to both spouses at the same time. These agreements are particularly useful where the spouses anticipate future circumstances such as the taking on of business debt and the possibility of creditor action against one of the spouses.
The community property regime can also be terminated after the marriage has begun. A postnuptial agreement can terminate the community property regime. In doing so, some of our past clients have succeeded in saving their marriages.
These are only some of the situations that a postnuptial or prenuptial agreement can address. If you would like to learn more about how such agreements might be able to help your family focus on the emotional health of your family without being distracted unnecessarily by money and property issues, you can contact our firm today.
