Premarital Agreements in Cleveland, Ohio
If you are seeking an attorney experienced with drafting premarital agreements, call Skirbunt & Skirbunt LLC. We can help.
In Ohio, only prior to your marriage can you enter into an agreement that contemplates the treatment of assets during your marriage; for the disposition of assets upon death; and, for what you and your spouse will receive in the event that your marriage ends in divorce. These premarital agreements are also sometimes called antenuptial agreements or prenuptial agreements.
At Skirbunt & Skirbunt LLC, we see these unique documents as a means of providing the parties with freedom—the freedom to do what they want during their lifetime, at death, and in the event of divorce. Rather than being controlled by the tenants of Ohio statutes and case law, clients may freely craft a plan that meets their specific needs and expectations for the duration of their marriage.
Negotiating a premarital agreement does not have to be an anxiety-filled experience. The process of negotiating and obtaining a premarital agreement does not need to be an adversarial experience that dampens the enthusiasm for your upcoming wedding. We can facilitate a creative conversation that will assist you in identifying appropriate outcomes regarding lifetime, testamentary, and divorce issues. Having a premarital agreement can actually remove uncertainty and promote harmony in your relationship.
Premarital agreements are unique documents that provide unique protection upon divorce or death. If you are considering marriage and have a substantial net worth, own a business, or have substantial retirement assets, a premarital agreement can define an orderly transition in the event of a divorce or upon your death during marriage. We have extensive experience in negotiating, drafting and litigating premarital agreements. Call us. We can help.
