Prenuptial/Marital Agreements on Long Island

Experienced family lawyers help couples plan ahead

Attorneys at the Long Island law office of Bryan L. Salamone & Associates, P.C. are experienced at customizing prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements for couples that legally describe each party's assets, debts, and property rights, as well as how property division and spousal support is handled in the event of termination of the marriage. The structure and language of such agreements must be extremely precise and within the laws of New York State to withstand legal challenge.

Prenuptial agreements in Nassau and Suffolk counties

Long used only by celebrities and the very wealthy, prenuptial agreements are voluntary contracts that have become quite common among many couples planning to marry. They may be designed to ensure, in the event of divorce or death, the following:

  • Protection of children's interests from a previous marriage
  • Protection of one spouse's assets from the other spouse
  • Distribution of an estate according to the parties' wishes

Post-nuptial agreements enact financial safeguards

A post-nuptial agreement is a voluntary contract created after marriage. Post-nuptial agreements can help:

  • Resolve issues in a marriage by ending disagreements over finances, assets, children, and even chores
  • Stop conflict and promote harmony
  • Benefit the financial status of either spouse when changes occur, such as through a career change, an inheritance, change in investments, or selling a business

The need for prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements becomes increasingly important as people's economic circumstances grow more complex. It is prudent that certain kinds of property acquired before and after a marriage be identified and their potential future disposition clearly agreed to. This helps avoid litigation in the event of a divorce.

Our firm's experience in prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements is extensive and personal. Firm founder Mr. Salamone's prenuptial agreement was upheld when his own divorce was handled by the firm. Mr. Salamone has never had to pay alimony thanks to his iron-clad prenuptial agreement.
