Prenuptial Agreements

Morristown Pre-nuptial Agreements Lawyer

family law 3No one enters into a marriage with the expectation that it will ultimately end in divorce. But unfortunately, almost half of all marriages do. At Salvaggio Garibian, LLC, our lawyers assist couples in the drafting of prenuptial agreements. Many couples find this process actually enhances their communication with one another and find the pre-nuptial agreement process to be educational, rather than adversarial.

In today’s society, many couples are waiting longer to get married for the first time. As a result, they may have acquired substantial assets that need to be protected. Similarly, many couples are getting married for the second or third time, and in addition to assets, they may have children whose needs must be considered before entering into another marriage. A pre-nuptial agreement is a contract between prospective spouses. Most agreements contain provisions limiting the distribution of marital property and alimony in the event of a divorce, and limiting the distribution of property to a spouse in the event of death.

Many couples decide to draft pre-nuptial agreements with the help of a mediator. Attorney David Salvaggio has received special training as a mediator in the state of New Jersey. Many couples find that having the help of a neutral third party, such as a mediator, helps them to explore all options and their potential consequences. The mediator then summarizes the agreements reached in the mediation process in a non-legal document called the Memorandum of Understanding. The couple then has separate lawyers review the Memorandum turn it into a legal pre-nuptial agreement. At Salvaggio Garibian, LLC, we offer our clients both of these services under one roof.

Our lawyers help couples in northern and central New Jersey, including Morris, Somerset, Passaic, Union, Sussex, Essex and Warren draft their prenuptial agreements, and get off to a secure start in their new lives together.
