Prenuptial agreements serve an important function even for those who are not wealthy. In addition to keeping what you have, you can also protect yourself from debts that a partner brings to a marriage. Working closely with you, Hart Law Office can draft a document that provides security as you enter a marriage and averts costly litigation if it ends. We can also address these concerns in a postmarital agreement after your wedding.
Spouses who wish to live apart without legally terminating their marriage can file for a legal separation in a process similar to divorce.Â If this is what you choose, Hart Law Office can assist you with the required procedure, including the sworn testimony from both spouses that the marital relationship is broken. Couples wishing to separate must also state why they seek separation rather than divorce. One year after the separation, the agreement can be converted into a divorce if the couple so wishes.
