Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement Attorney Tulsa

Today, because divorce is so common, many couples rely on marital agreements either before or after marriage to minimize the potential of disputes. A couple that is considering marriage, or is already married, has the option of utilizing either a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement to achieve this objective. The Law Offices of Greg Lavender routinely prepare marital agreements for clients in the state of Oklahoma.

Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial, or premarital, agreement is entered into before a couple marries in order to specify each partner's property ownership and their respective property rights if they subsequently divorce. The main advantages of a prenuptial agreement are that it provides financial clarity while also avoiding a court intervention when questions of dividing property arise. A premarital agreement can also enable the spouses to avoid the disputes typically associated with divorce.

A well thought-out prenuptial agreement will also clarify how joint banks accounts, household bills and credit card payments will be managed. Premarital agreements can also provide instructions regarding how disputes will be handled, such as through alternative dispute resolution. The court must approve the agreement and will only do so if it is fair and both parties have entered into it without coercion.

Postnuptial Agreement

A postnuptial, or postmarital, agreement is entered into after a couple marries and details how the property will be divided if they separate or divorce. A well-designed agreement will also clarify each partner's rights and responsibilities during the marriage. Each spouse must disclose both separate and marital property as well as other property acquired before the marriage, such as an inheritance, a gift or proceeds from a legal settlement.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are designed to address the fact that marriage is not only a personal commitment, but also a business relationship. The Law Offices of Greg Lavender has expertise in matrimonial law in the state of Oklahoma and will work with you to protect your interests.
