Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements can be a sensitive topic but are essential to the protection of your financial interests. When drawing up the appropriate documents, it is important to ensure that both parties are protected and adequately provided for, but equally important that the contract is ironclad and there is no room for debate should circumstances result in the agreement being used.

Although no one likes to consider the possibility of the dissolution of their marriage, the reality is that over 50% of marriages now end in divorce. Arguments over finances can make an already painful divorce even more stressful, which is why it is beneficial for both parties that your prenuptial agreement is articulate and professional. Hopefully, your prenuptial agreement will never see use. However, it is best to be prepared for any and all potentialities.

A prenuptial agreement, antenuptial agreement, or premarital agreement, commonly abbreviated to prenup or prenupt, is a contract entered into prior to marriage, civil union or any other agreement prior to the main agreement by the people intending to marry or contract with each other. The content of a prenuptial agreement can vary widely, but commonly includes provisions for division of property and spousal support in the event of divorce or breakup of a marriage. They may also include terms for the forfeiture of assets as a result of divorce on the grounds of adultery; further conditions of guardianship may be included as well.

Like them or not, they are becoming more popular and more necessary in protecting the interests of both parties.

If not done properly, prenups can be challenged and even overturned. Do it right the first time! Call us.

Separation Agreement

When going through a separation, the last things you want to worry about are legalities and fine print. This is why it is best to leave the creation of your separation agreement to a professional, unbiased third party. Kazembe and Associates is qualified to assist you with all of your family law needs. Leave the tedium and frustration of legal documents to us, and concentrate your energy on your personal health and emotional recovery.

A separation is often a stressful, emotionally draining experience, and it is easy to become distracted by personal quarrels that can lead to drawn out arguments and bitter fights. By allowing Kazembe and Associates to deal with the detailed and often complicated issues involved in a separation, you can lower your stress level in a time when peace of mind is essential.

Divorce

Divorce can be a stressful, difficult experience for all parties involved. Painful emotions often come into play, and it is common for both sides to become bitter and resentful. Unfortunately, this approach only serves to lengthen and complicate the process, creating additional stress and pain for everyone.

One’s approach during a divorce should be to work towards a speedy, mutually agreeable settlement, while ensuring that your personal rights and assets are adequately protected. Although it may be tempting to try to work through a divorce settlement one-on-one, it is typically much faster, safer, and less complicated to enlist the representation of a qualified family law professional.
