Las Vegas Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement Lawyers
If you live in southern Nevada—Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, and Mesquite—and are interested in obtaining a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, it’s essential you ensure that all your bases are covered to protect everything you hope to safeguard. You need the best legal help you can get.
You need the Law.
There are many reasons you might want or need a prenuptial. The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 123A covers potential situations in detail. At its simplest, a prenuptial is simply an agreement between partners before marriage, effective only when the two wed. It must be signed by both parties. The prenup itself can cover a lot of ground. Most people think a prenup is only limited to property held by either party before the marriage, but it can also cover any settlement prospective spouses can expect if the marriage does not succeed, knowing up front what a separation or divorce would look like. Prenups can also set up rights and obligations of the partners involved, including any personal issues or needs of one partner or another.
If a child or children are involved in a prenuptial agreement, those needs must be considered primary. This aspect of the law and agreement can be complex to navigate and I will help make sure that the health and security of your children is taken into account in any agreement before you get married. The NRS deals with the issue of children and prenups specifically. The State of Nevada seeks to have strong families and stands up for its youngest residents.
It is possible to amend or revoke a prenuptial agreement. After marriage, the initial agreed to document becomes binding. If both the parties agree, whether the marriage has been short or long, the agreement can be changed. I can help you with that process if necessary.
If you feel you have been unfairly treated in your prenuptial agreement or are a victim of fraud after the fact, I can help you get the justice you deserve. The NRS has specific guidelines in enforcing or not enforcing Prenuptials based upon certain circumstances. In my 30 years of doing this type of law, I have seen almost everything. If you were coerced into a prenup, I can work to bring you the agreement you should have had. If your partner was not fully honest with the amount of property or value of other assets when you signed a prenup, I can help you get a fair deal.
If the marriage doesn’t work out and you gave up rights to support or alimony from a previous marriage, which sometimes happens, I can help you to make sure you have enough support to live. This is a very important issue, especially if you have children. You may not have understood what you were getting into when you originally agreed to the prenup. We can sue for justice even if your marriage fails.
