Lincoln, Nebraska Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Lawyers in Lancaster County

Assisting Individuals with Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements in Lincoln, Nebraska and Throughout Lancaster County

Arranging a prenuptial agreement may not always seem like the most romantic choice. However, for many couples, it is a wise choice to give some thought to. Prenuptial agreements — also called prenups, premarital agreements or even antenuptial agreements — allow couples who are entering into a marriage to protect their separate property in the event that the marriage ends. At Stange Law Firm, PC, we represent clients in Lincoln, NE in Lancaster County and help them draft, review and litigate prenuptial agreements. We can also handle issues related to postnuptial agreements, which are similar to prenups, just drafted during a marriage.

What Is a Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract between two parties who are engaged to be married. The purpose of a prenup is to protect each person’s assets and property in the event of a divorce or death. Prenups can also be utilized to determine how property will be divided if the couple decides to divorce. Common items that are covered in a prenup include:
  • Premarital assets and debts: A prenup can specify what each person’s assets and debts are prior to the marriage. Items such as houses, cars, jewelry, and other valuable items that were obtained before the marriage can be specified as belonging to one person. This can help avoid arguments about who owns these items if the couple gets divorced.
  • Inheritances and gifts: A prenup can also specify what will happen to inheritances and gifts that are received during the marriage. For example, if one person inherits a house from their parents, that person can specify in the prenup that the house will remain their property regardless of how little or long the couple is married.
  • Children from a previous relationship: If either person has children from a previous relationship, a prenup can be used to specify how financial responsibility for the children will be divided. This can help avoid arguments about child support and custody if the couple gets divorced.
  • Alimony: A prenup can be used to waive the right to alimony or specify how much alimony one person would be entitled to if the couple gets divorced.
  • Property division: A prenup can specify how property will be divided if the couple gets divorced. For example, the prenup can specify that all property acquired during the marriage will be divided equally.

Effective Prenuptial Agreements in Lincoln, Nebraska in Lancaster County and Nearby

Effective prenuptial agreements should contain detailed descriptions of the significant property and debts owned by each party. Depending on the nature and complexity of these assets, a prenuptial agreement can be just a few pages — or a few hundred. At Stange Law Firm, PC in Lincoln, we draft each prenup so that it meets the exact needs of our clients. To be valid, a prenuptial agreement must meet precise requirements:
  • Be signed by both spouses
  • Be accompanied by a complete disclosure of all assets, income and debts of each spouse
  • List court-ordered maintenance being paid or received
  • Allow spouses sufficient opportunity to consider the provisions of the agreement consult with lawyers before signing
  • Be entered into freely and voluntarily

What is a Postnuptial Agreement in Lancaster County, Nebraska?

Also called post-marital agreements, postnuptial agreements are contracts between two partners that are entered into during a marriage. Like prenuptial agreements, they contain provisions addressing how to divide property in the event of divorce or the loss of a spouse.

Enforcing a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement in Lincoln, Nebraska in Lancaster County

It can be hard to enforce a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement. The standards that courts impose are high. But when a family law matter requires legal action, we offer high-quality legal solutions for our clients in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our focus is assisting you to move in the right direction. We do this by working closely with you to establish a family law strategy that weighs costs and benefits of each action. Together, we take action towards a favorable outcome. Not being represented by legal counsel at the time of signing can be a basis for challenging the ability to enforce a prenuptial agreement later on. For this reason, both parties really should have their own legal representation. Please note as well that the Founding Partner of the firm, Kirk C. Stange, authored a book on prenuptial agreements through Thomson Reuters (Aspatore Publishing) titled: Prenuptial Agreements Line by Line.
