Orland Park Marriage and Divorce Planning Attorney

Oak Forest Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer

Law Firm For Prenuptial, Postnuptial Agreements and Litigation In Cook County

Marriage is not just an expression of love and commitment between two individuals, but a legally binding contract that unites nearly every aspect of a couple's lives. The decision to get married affects people's relationships with family and friends, the income they earn, their debts and expenses, the property they own, their inheritance rights, and much more. For these reasons, it is understandable for people planning to marry to make sure they will have the resources they need, no matter what happens in the future.

While planning for a potential divorce may seem to be in poor taste when a couple is preparing to get married, it can be beneficial to consider the worst case scenario and put protections in place that will allow both spouses to survive if their marriage ever ends. At Anderson and Associates, P.C., our attorneys have more than 30 years of experience assisting clients in a wide variety of family law cases, and we can make sure that your rights and interests are protected as you plan for your future.

Creating Legal Agreements for Married and Unmarried Couples

With our years of experience assisting couples in legal disputes throughout every stage of marriage and divorce, we can provide you with the knowledge you need to prepare for any situation. We provide legal help with:

  • Prenuptial Agreements - A premarital agreement can provide protection for spouses when one spouse earns a higher income or when one or both spouses enter the marriage with significant assets or debts. These agreements can also ensure that children from a previous relationship will have the resources they need if the marriage ends in divorce or death.
  • Postnuptial Agreements - When married couples make significant financial decisions, such as starting a family-owned business, they may wish to create an agreement that describes how ownership of this business will be handled in the case of divorce.
  • Cohabitation Agreements - Since Illinois law does not recognize common-law marriage, couples who live together as partners without entering the legal bond of marriage may wish to create an agreement which specifies how they will share their finances and how property will be divided in the case of a breakup, as well as any other applicable legal issues that may arise.
  • Premarital and Postmarital Litigation - If spouses disagree over the terms of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, we can assist in reaching a resolution, including providing representation in court.
