Harrisburg Prenuptial Agreements Lawyers

Planning for Property Distribution Through Premarital Agreements

A prenuptial or premarital agreement can be very beneficial in the event that a marriage should end in divorce. Prenuptial agreements allow both parties to clearly define their property, support and other rights prior to getting married. These agreements are also frequently used to define property divisions, valuations, alimony payments, allocation of debts that parties bring into the marriage and other provisions.

A person may choose a prenuptial agreement ("prenup") to protect a family business, inheritance and family heirlooms or, in the case of a second marriage, to ensure that one's personal estate is protected for later distribution to his or her children. These important documents need to be written in a way that limits the possibility of being challenged in a divorce.
