Are You Considering a Prenuptial Agreement? Our Attorneys Are Committed to the Results You Need

Attorney for Prenuptial Agreements

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 Cook County family law 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

Making the Process Acceptable for Both Parties

We completely understand the delicate nature of creating and finalizing a prenuptial agreement. Getting your fiancée to agree to the terms and conditions set forth can, in itself, be a difficult task. Our legal team can provide you and your soon-to-be spouse with sound legal advice as we explain the benefits of a prenuptial agreement. We will make sure to approach the subject with the goal of making the process acceptable for both parties.
