What is a prenuptial agreement?

Prior to getting married, some couples choose to create a prenuptial contract listing the property, assets and debts of each person. In the event of a divorce, the prenup specifies each person’s property rights.


Should I get a prenuptial agreement?

If you are planning to get married, we can advise you about whether you should have a prenuptial agreement. Usually, a prenup is recommended in cases where there is a substantial difference between the assets owned by the prospective spouses or in second marriages where there are children from a previous marriage.


What happens if I get divorced without a prenup?

Without a prenuptial agreement, a judge will decide what happens to your assets in the event of a divorce or the death of one of the parties. To avoid this, you and your prospective spouse can contact us early on and set your own terms within a prenuptial agreement completed prior to your wedding.


Do you need legal help for child support?

Whether you’re trying to get custody of your child, get your child payments reduced, or you want to enforce a child support order, our child support attorneys can evaluate your case and guide you through the process. Here’s some great info on how to change a child custody agreement.


How much does child support cost?

Generally, child support is based on the number of children you have, your income, and payments you are already contributing towards the child’s daycare and healthcare. There are several child support payment calculators online.
