Prenuptial And Separation Agreements In New York
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, as well as separation agreements, are contracts. In order to be successful, they must be carefully prepared and understood by both parties. Each party must acknowledge and agree to his or her responsibilities. Not surprisingly, people who enter into these types of agreements are much more likely to follow them than those who are simply given court orders by judges to follow.
At Kelton & Teichner, we have a long record of creating successful prenup and postnuptial agreements. The key to success is full disclosure. Each side must be made fully aware of the other side’s assets and intentions. The agreement will typically require one side waiving the rights that would typically come with a marriage, in terms of how property is divided upon divorce. With more than 30 years of experience serving Queens County and Nassau County, we know the importance of carefully crafting these agreements.
What Does A Separation Agreement Include?
As an alternative to divorce, many people choose to create a separation agreement. These are similar to divorce agreements, except that the spouses remain married and are not able to remarry. However, agreements are reached regarding:
- Property division
- Child custody, visitation and relocation
- Child support
- Spousal support and alimony
This alternative is typically used for religious reasons or health insurance reasons. Our family law attorneys will offer guidance as to whether this is the right option for you.
