A prenuptial agreement is also known as premarital or ante-nuptial agreement. Basically it is a contract between two people that is entered into before they get married. The contract specifies how property, debts, and assets are divided if the parties divorce, die, or separate. In Massachusetts each party must provide full financial disclosure to the other party and both parties must have legal representation of an attorney in order for the agreement to be enforceable.
We are experienced in preparing and challenging prenuptial agreements. We understand the sensitivity of the matter and are cognizant of the fact that parties involved in the negotiation of a contract made prior to marriage are doing so to prevent their interests in the event that the marriage does not succeed but in no way expect the marriage to do so.
