Chicago Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys
Serving Chicago & Chicagoland including Cook, Will, DuPage & Lake Counties
Many marriages today are made up of blended families, combining children from previous marriages. Other marriages are between people with substantial means and assets of their own. Many couples find it worthwhile, amidst all their other preparations, to meet with a qualified lawyer and outline a practical understanding of rights and responsibilities — in particular, which assets and debts belong to whom.
Questions Prenuptial Agreements Can Resolve
~What each side’s debts and assets are
~Which assets will be owned exclusively by which family members
~How future assets will be divided among children from previous marriages
~Who is responsible for debts incurred prior to the marriage
~Who is responsible for future costs of children, including college
~Which finances and assets are to be kept separate, out of the marriage
~How will money be managed in the new family
~Who will pay the bills
~Who will file tax returns
Draft a Prenuptial Agreement Today to Avoid Disagreements Later
These are all very practical questions that, left unanswered, have the potential to cause serious problems later. The best time to affect an understanding is always at the beginning.

Both Premarital and Postnuptial Agreements Are Effective
If you should fail to create a prenuptial agreement before the wedding, all is not lost. Agreements can still be fashioned any time after the marriage gets underway. Again, the two spouses seek to clarify their rights and obligations in the event of a divorce. Property division and spousal maintenance are frequently the focuses of postnuptial agreements.
A prenuptial agreement prevents major misunderstandings later.
