The best time to decide how assets like a family-owned business will be treated in case of a divorce is when people like each other and are behaving rationally. Prenuptial agreements can make a divorce much more amicable while protecting the assets held by either or both families at the time of the marriage – even in the case of a first marriage.
Anyone who has experienced divorce may understandably want to take steps to avoid difficult property issues going into a second marriage. This is especially true in cases when the second marriage involves children from a previous marriage or when one or both parties already have substantial assets. Prenuptial agreements are regulated by strict laws. The attorneys at Easley & Marquis are experienced in the preparation and enforcement of these agreements to effectively protect you and your property.
