Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer In Buffalo

Anticipate Problems with Our Buffalo Divorce Attorneys

A prenuptial agreement can be considered an insurance policy against the worst-case scenario. Prior to your marriage, it is wise to assess each party's assets and come to an agreement regarding what would happen should a separation or divorce occur. This decision protects both parties and sometimes can even help resolve financial conflict before the marriage begins.

Call (716) 854-5555 today to speak with an experienced Buffalo divorce lawyer.

Protecting Your Future

In order for your agreement to be considered valid, it must meet certain criteria. If the agreement does not meet these requirements, you run the risk of having an agreement that cannot be enforced in the event of a separation or divorce.

With over four decades of experience, our Buffalo divorce lawyers at The Rossi Law Firm are skilled and experienced in drafting and analyzing prenuptial agreements, and we are often able to foresee potential issues before they cause problems later on, allowing us to create a tailored approach based on the specific needs of each client.

We review your agreement for all circumstances, including:

  • Anticipated increase in salary or income
  • Hidden assets that are unknown to either party
  • Custody scenarios for your children
  • Considerations of existing debt
  • Acknowledgement of caring for elderly parents
  • Business ownership and specifications for responsibility

Can a Prenuptial Agreement Protect Future Assets?

In New York State, a prenuptial agreement can include provisions to protect future assets. For those with a higher earning capacity, or individuals with significant business interests, a prenup can protect future assets from being exposed to a distribution in any divorce.

Commonly Asked Questions

What are the benefits of having a prenuptial agreement in Buffalo?

A prenuptial agreement in Buffalo offers several benefits, including the protection of individual assets, clarification of financial rights and responsibilities during marriage, and simplification of asset division in the event of a divorce. It serves as a proactive measure to prevent disputes and ensure both parties have a clear understanding of the financial implications of their union. This legal document can also safeguard future assets and provide peace of mind for both spouses.

How can The Rossi Law Firm assist with my prenuptial agreement?

The Rossi Law Firm, with over four decades of legal experience in Buffalo, provides comprehensive services for drafting and reviewing prenuptial agreements. Our attorneys are adept at identifying and addressing potential issues, ensuring that the agreement is tailored to the unique circumstances of each client. We consider various factors such as income changes, hidden assets, child custody, debt, and business ownership to create a robust and enforceable agreement.

What criteria must a prenuptial agreement meet to be valid in Buffalo?

In Buffalo, a prenuptial agreement must meet specific legal criteria to be considered valid and enforceable. It should be entered into voluntarily by both parties, with full and fair disclosure of all assets. The agreement must be in writing and executed before the marriage. It should also be fair and reasonable, notarized, and ideally reviewed by independent legal counsel for each party to ensure that it stands up in court if challenged.

Can a prenuptial agreement in Buffalo include provisions for child custody?

While a prenuptial agreement in Buffalo can address financial matters and asset protection, it typically cannot include binding provisions for child custody. Custody decisions are based on the best interests of the child at the time of the separation or divorce, and thus cannot be predetermined. However, discussing these matters in advance can help set expectations and provide a framework for future negotiations.
