Agreements may be called for in a variety of family legal situations:

  • Marital agreements for divorcing spouses about their children, property, and finances
  • Parenting agreements for separated parents about parenting responsibilities and financial support for their children
  • Premarital/Prenuptial for future spouses for asset and financial protection
  • Postnuptial & Reconciliation for married spouses to protect assets and finances after marriage or when remaining together after marital difficulties
  • Cohabitation for unmarried persons who live together about their financial and property responsibilities

Many family legal matters involve a written and signed agreement.  An agreement gives the parties a voice in and control over its terms, which can be personalized to the parties’ unique circumstances and goals.  To address current concerns and clarify expectations about the future.
