Wheaton Postnuptial Agreement Lawyers

Why Have a Postnuptial Agreement in Illinois?

Marital agreements, whether drawn up before or after the wedding, are legally enforceable contracts between a husband and a wife. A postnuptial agreement typically defines the "character" of all or a portion of marital assets, defining ownership of certain property. It can also define who is responsible for debts.

A post-nuptial agreement is often used to protect the marital property interests of one spouse if the other spouse is about to embark on a risky business venture. It can also be helpful during a time of marital problems, providing peace of mind to a spouse who feels at financial risk but who might be willing to work on a relationship if they felt their interests were protected.

At the law office of Anderson & Associates, our family law attorneys assist couples in reviewing or drafting enforceable marital agreements. The Illinois firm won a precedent-setting postnuptial case on appeal, and has experienced lawyers ready to serve clients with postmarital agreement needs.

If you would like to learn more about the possible benefits of a postnuptial agreement, we invite you to contact a family lawyer at Anderson & Associates. For more than 25 years, we've been providing sensitive and effective legal counsel to couples in the greater Chicago area. Call 847-995-9999 (Schaumburg office) or 630-653-9400 (Wheaton office) or to schedule a free initial consultation.
