Prenuptial & Cohabitation Agreements
Prenuptial Agreements Premarital and Cohabitation Agreements
If you contemplate getting married, you should seriously consider a premarital agreement. Although nobody plans for divorce, almost half of marriages end in divorce. You are much more likely to lose your assets in a divorce than a recession. Premarital agreements provide peace of mind to the individuals entering into a marriage with significant pre-existing assets, business interests or debts. New Jersey recognizes marital contracts – prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements, in addition to cohabitation and domestic partnership agreements – in determining equitable distribution of assets, alimony and support.
