At Rotolo, Bozanian & Yi, we offer comprehensive legal services in a broad range of complex New Jersey family law matters, including prenuptial agreements. Prenuptial agreements are executed in contemplation and consideration of marriage to define the interests, rights and obligations of prospective spouses. Also commonly referred to as premarital agreements or antenuptial agreements, prenuptial agreements are effective vehicles to avoid difficult and costly legal issues that arise after a marriage occurs, and most importantly, in the event it ends. § 47:1.Introduction, 16 N.J. Prac., Legal Forms § 47:1 (4th ed.)

Why Would I Need A Prenup?
A prenuptial agreement is a contract specifying how a marrying couple’s assets will be divided in the event of a divorce or death. Prenuptial agreements deal with the division of marital property, such as land, buildings, and retirement and bank accounts. In New Jersey, prenuptial agreements must be signed before a couple marries and go into effect immediately after.
Couples may opt for a prenuptial agreement for a variety of reasons. These types of contracts can help to define:
• Rights related to income and property upon divorce
• How spouses handle income during the marriage
• The way marital and non-marital property is acquired during the marriage
• How expenses are paid for during the marriage
• Respective rights in the event of a spouse’s death
• How children from previous marriages will inherit assets
Prenuptial agreements can serve additional purposes. To learn why a prenuptial agreement may be the right choice for you, contact us for an initial consultation with our experienced family law attorney today.
