Prenuptial Agreements in Hoffman Estates

Protecting Your Pre-Marital Interests & Assets

A prenuptial agreement is a legal agreement that is made before marriage between both spouses. This agreement decides how assets, debts, and other financial matters will be handled should a divorce occur in the future. While many may view this as a negative thing to do before marriage, having a prenuptial agreement in place can actually help you avoid serious and costly disputes down the road. Our Hoffman Estates divorce attorney at the Law Firm of Caryl Jacobs Gabe, Ltd. can help you create a solid and legally sound prenuptial agreement that is aimed at protecting your pre-marital interests and assets.

Some of the issues that can be covered in a prenuptial agreement include:

  • How property will be divided
  • Each spouse's right to use, sell, transfer, manage, or dispose of property
  • How alimony will be paid, if at all, and the amount and duration of the payments
  • Ownership rights in the death benefit from a spouse's life insurance policy
  • Other legal matters that the couple can create a contract for
