Antenuptial Agreement, also known as a Prenuptial Agreement, is not just for the rich and famous.
Antenuptial or Prenuptial Agreements are for anyone, any age, first marriage or not, who desires to protect their assets, or make provisions regarding spousal support, custody, child support or inheritance, in the event of a later divorce, separation or death.
Once you are married, New York law will dictate and decide what happens to your assets, liabilities, children and inheritance and what you have to pay for support, upon your subsequent divorce, separation or death, UNLESS, you have entered into and executed a valid Antenuptial or Prenuptial Agreement.
A properly drafted Antenuptial or Prenuptial Agreement, executed in conformity with New York laws, allows a person to "opt-out" of New York law governing distribution of assets, property and liabilities, custody, spousal and child support, upon a divorce, separation or death, subject to certain restrictions. See Domestic Relations Law (DRL) 236B(3).
A well drafted and properly executed Antenuptial or Prenuptial Agreement is worth "its weight in gold" because, if you later decide to file for divorce or separation or you are sued for divorce or separation, the important and significant issues will already have been resolved and thereby prevent a costly and time consuming divorce or separation action.
An Antenuptial or Prenuptial Agreement must be drafted correctly and in compliance with New York law to be effective. If not, the Prenuptial Agreement can be challenged, held invalid, and void and have no force or effect.
