Prenuptial Agreement

If you are getting married, Max can assist you in determining whether or not a prenuptial agreement is in your best interest. Max can prepare a prenuptial agreement for you, and advise you on a prenuptial agreement that someone wishes you to sign.

 

In 1990, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court upheld the validity of prenuptial agreements in Simeone v. Simeone.

 

Even parties with modest means benefit from prenuptial agreements.  For example, if you are getting married, and one or both of your parents contribute money toward the purchase of a home, it is possible to protect your parent's contributions to your home.

 

Additionally, if you and your spouse-to-be purchased a home before marriage, a prenuptial agreement can help solve several issues such as who retains ownership of the home, and who maintains the home.

 

Prenuptial agreements also protect the inheritance of children from a first marriage if one or both parties are marrying for a second time, and also protect family businesses.
