When going through the process of planning for an upcoming wedding, many couples do not take the time to sit down and discuss their assets. Any assets you bring into the marriage need to be protected. A prenuptial agreement can accomplish this task, though these contracts are still often viewed negatively and as a sign that one party is planning for divorce.

This is not the case, and we at Campagna Johnson, P.C., work to change our clients' perceptions. Due to new laws going into effect in New York, it is more important than ever to protect yourself and your assets from the uncertainty that accompanies unanticipated events.

Whether you are the party who is considering having a prenuptial agreement drafted, or have been presented with one to sign, our family law firm is here to help. We have extensive experience handling even the most complex prenuptial agreements involving high-dollar assets and businesses.

In addition, we are skilled litigators who can handle any issues and disputes involving prenuptial agreements that may arise if a divorce occurs.

Postnuptial Agreements

In addition to handling prenuptial agreements for clients who have yet to be married, we draft, review and negotiate postnuptial agreements for clients who are already married. These documents are essentially the same as prenuptial agreements and protect your assets. However, postnuptial agreements are drafted and signed after the marriage has already taken place.

New Maintenance Statutes

In June of 2015, the state of New York passed a series of revisions to the existing spousal maintenance (sometimes commonly called spousal support or alimony) laws. With the changes affecting the amount of maintenance that is awarded, it may be in your best interests to consider a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. In these documents, you can address the amount of spousal maintenance that will be paid and the limitations of maintenance upon an unforeseen divorce. To discuss how the new statutes may affect your marriage, talk to a member of our experienced legal team.
