With nearly half of all marriages ending in divorce, seeking a premarital agreement is never a bad idea—especially if you are bringing significant assets into your union. At Nitti & Nitti Attorneys at Law, we represent men and women alike in these matters and help people throughout Essex County, Morris County, and Northern New Jersey.
Our Roseland family lawyers can draft a wide range of marital agreements. Contact us today at (973) 718-3649 to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your needs.
The most common marital contract and the most well known is the prenuptial agreement--or prenup for short. However, there are other types of marital agreements people enter into for various reasons.
Whatever your particular needs are, the Roseland marital agreement attorneys at our firm are skilled at drafting documents that will withstand future legal challenges if your circumstances change. Assets we can protect include real estate, investment property, pensions, 401K accounts, business interests, and more.
This is especially important to do before marriage because new Jersey is an equitable distribution state.This means that unless otherwise agreed to in a pre- or post-nuptial contract, all of the property you owned as an individual can easily become joint properly (through co-mingling) after you are married.
If you have already made the decision to seek a divorce and would like to resolve the issues in your marriage with as little cost as possible, consider negotiating a property settlement agreement first. The purpose of a property settlement agreement is to divide the assets and debts accumulated in a marriage so that the court does not have to divide them for you. This can save a great deal of time, expense, and hard feelings later on.
