Prenuptial Agreements

To safeguard the property and financial rights of each spouse in the event of a divorce, many couples choose to enter into a prenuptial agreement prior to marriage. The benefits of a prenuptial agreement include documenting each spouse’s separate properties and/or businesses, assigning debts, detailing special arrangements between to-be spouses, and reducing conflict and extensive court proceedings should divorce arise later.

At Isaac Wiles, our Family Law team routinely works with couples to establish prenuptial agreements that protect and manage their individual financial assets and liabilities in the event of dissolution or divorce. More people than ever acknowledge that marriage is not just a romantic relationship, but also a business relationship in which each spouse’s financial interests and rights are valued.

Protections and provisions

Our Family Law attorneys pour through the details to ensure our clients can safeguard their individual assets and liabilities prior to saying, “I do.” Prenuptial agreements might include determinations of property, limitations on debt liability, provisions for children from previous relationships, protection of family property and estate plans, and distribution of property after divorce. We help create exhaustive, formal prenuptial agreements that take into consideration the businesses, retirement, real estate, bank accounts, credit cards, children and debt each spouse brings to the relationship…before walking down the aisle.

The Isaac Wiles Family Law team includes attorneys with more than 135 years of combined experience in the areas of divorce, dissolution, separation, premarital agreement, child custody and support, and adoption law. Our attorneys included those listed among the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys Best in Client Satisfaction; Best Lawyers in America; Ohio Super Lawyers and Martindale-Hubble. The Family Law team includes a former Franklin County Court of Common Pleas Domestic Relations Court judge, who previously served as a foster parent.
