Attorney Anne B. Howard can prepare your pre-nuptial agreements. A pre-nuptial agreement is advisable when you have an asset or assets that you want to keep separate despite getting married.
Both parties must disclose their assets and debts. Pre-nuptial agreements should ideally be completed at least a month before the wedding date to withstand a legal challenge. That means the first draft should be done about two months before the wedding date to give the other side a chance to meet with their own attorney and changes to be made.
Please note that Attorney Anne requires that both parties have legal representation to strengthen the effectiveness of your agreement. If English is not one party’s first language and fluency in English is an issue, Attorney Anne requires that documents be translated by a certified translator.
Attorney Anne charges $3,000 for most pre-nuptial agreements. She charges higher fees when there are extensive or complex financial issues involved. Certified translations are an additional fee.
Attorney Anne can prepare your post-nuptial agreements. You might consider doing a post-nuptial agreement if you didn’t complete a pre-nuptial agreement in time, are contemplating divorce, or have legal issues where a post-nuptial agreement may protect the other party.
In this instance, both parties must have legal representation and must make extensive, detailed financial disclosures for the post-nuptial agreement to withstand a legal challenge.
Attorney Anne charges $3,500 for most post-nuptial agreements due to the more extensive, detailed financial disclosures required. She charges higher fees when there are extensive or complex financial issues involved. Certified translations are an additional fee.
