Drafting All Types Of Marital Agreements

A legally binding contract can prevent many future disputes between spouses. It can also clarify each party's rights and responsibilities in the relationship.

At Cohen & Lombardo, P.C., we frequently recommend various types of marital agreements and fully understand their benefits. From our Buffalo and Amherst offices, our New York attorneys draft and review the following:

  • Premarital (also called prenuptial) agreements
  • Postmarital (also called postnuptial or antenuptial) agreements
  • Separation and property settlement agreements

Do-It-Yourself Documents Are A Dangerous Choice

While downloading a generic form from the Internet may sound like a good way to save time and money, it is an extremely risky action to take. Marital agreements involve myriad factors that must be taken into consideration. The laws regarding such agreements are also numerous and complex.

Consulting an attorney skilled in this area of law is the very best way to guard your rights and your future.

Choose A Lawyer Who Will Provide Guidance, Not Merely Draft The Document

Beyond drawing up the agreement, you need an attorney who will keep your best interests in mind at all times. Many times, this means providing valuable counsel, not merely transcribing your words onto paper.

For instance, you may be willing to let your spouse take every last one of the marital assets to assuage feelings of guilt over the divorce. However, you may deeply regret such a decision a year — or 10 years — down the road. You can rely on us to point out the serious ramifications of such a decision instead of remaining silent. Ultimately, you will always have the last say, but you can feel confident that we will do everything on our end to protect your interests.
