Full-Service Marital Agreement Representation

Marital agreements can ease tensions and provide solutions for a range of family law issues without contentious battles before a judge. More and more people are choosing prenuptial agreements as part of their wedding plans to address financial and social concerns. These agreements do not mean that you expect the relationship to break down. Often, a prenuptial agreement adds a level of comfort for couples that helps to strengthen their marriage.

The lawyers at the Law Offices of Gore & Hand, LLC, in Silver Spring help men and women in Maryland understand the cost benefits and forward-thinking advantages that marital agreements can accomplish, including:

  • Prenuptial agreements: Common reasons people choose to enter a prenup agreement include a disparity in wealth or income when entering the marriage, concerns about conserving assets for children from a prior relationship and a desire to settle alimony and property division concerns to avoid protracted litigation should the couple grow apart in the future.
  • Post-nuptial agreements: Couples often decide after they have been married to craft an agreement concerning property division and alimony. Most often, couples choose to enter a post-nuptial agreement due to a change in the financial status of one or both spouses. An inheritance, for example, may serve as a basis to define nonmarital property to avoid future disputes about the commingling of assets.
  • Separation agreements: If you and your spouse have decided to live apart from each other, you can resolve many family law issues through a separation agreement. Maryland divorce law includes a waiting period, and settling these issues early can reduce the anxiety and stress of divorce. Couples may resolve a wide variety of divorce issues such as property division, child custody and support in a separation agreement without the cost of divorce.
  • Parenting plans: Parents who separate can create a valid child custody, support and parenting plan without going through a full divorce proceeding to serve the best interests of their children.

Marital agreements are essentially contracts that couples negotiate to resolve issues without a courtroom. For that reason, it is important for you to work with a caring, knowledgeable lawyer to ensure that your contract is comprehensive to accomplish your goals and drafted properly to be legally enforceable.
