Has Your Partner Asked You to Sign a Prenuptial Agreement?

Has your significant other asked you to sign a prenuptial agreement? Regardless of the circumstances of a prenuptial agreement, before signing, you should hire a Milton prenuptial agreement attorney. An attorney’s knowledge about prenuptial agreements can help guide you through the review of a prenuptial agreement and help protect your rights.

Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into between two people prior to their marriage. In the event of a divorce, a prenuptial agreement can dictate anything from guardianship to division of assets. While prior to marriage, most couples don’t want to plan for when their marriage might dissolve, it may be worth it to protect your assets prior to entering into a marriage. If you are interested in drafting a prenuptial agreement or if your spouse asked you to sign a prenuptial agreement, it is important that you have a skilled attorney draft and/or review the prenuptial agreement.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Prenuptial Agreement Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who’ve been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer’s experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It’s a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.

Statute – Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court.
