Prenuptial and Postnuptial Litigation
Schaumburg, Wheaton, Chicago Family Lawyers
Prenuptial (premarital) and postnuptial (postmarital) agreements are popular and usually effective legal solutions to asset protection for many married couples, particularly under circumstances such as the following:
- One spouse or the other has significant assets (such as real estate or business ownership) that the couple agrees to keep separate as non-marital property even after the marriage
- The soon-to-be husband or wife earns significantly more than his or her fiancée or fiancé and wants to protect that income in case of an eventual divorce or separation
- Estranged spouses wish to reconcile with conditions to be set forth in a post-nuptial agreement
- A spouse starts a business, and both agree to keep finances pertaining to that business solely in the domain of the business owner
Disputes over prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements may arise at the time of a separation or divorce even when the contract was entered into with precision and care. One party to the prenup or post-nup may claim that it was signed under duress.
