Discussing marital agreements is never easy. At best it’s unromantic. At worst it feels like you’re planning for failure. Even bringing it up can trigger complicated feelings. But the reality is that marital agreements, such as a prenuptial agreement or cohabitation agreement, exist to serve the same purpose as insurance.
No one wants to use insurance, but you want to have it in case something goes wrong in the future. The last thing you want to do is find yourself wishing you’d put together a prenuptial agreement or cohabitation agreement while you’re in the middle of a break-up.
When preparing for your marriage, the last thing you want to think about what happens if it doesn’t work out. Ogborne Law has worked with many couples to put together prenuptial agreements in a way that is respectful of everyone’s feelings while still ensuring that the integrity of individual assets are preserved in the agreement.
We understand the potential pitfalls and risks, that’s why the team at Ogborne Law is ready to help you build your prenuptial agreement.
A postnuptial agreement is a legal agreement between a married couple that establishes how their assets will be divided in a legal separation or divorce and the amount of spousal maintenance one spouse or the other will have to pay if the marriage ends.
It’s a growing trend that more people are choosing to live together, have children, and build lives without getting married. And while there are many reasons for people to make this choice, the reality is that it can make things difficult for them if they decide to end the relationship.
The only way to protect your rights when the relationship ends is with a cohabitation agreement. At Ogborne Law, we’ve worked with many couples to create a cohabitation agreement that assigns legal responsibility for finances, property, and children.
