Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Attorneys in Chicago
Serving Couples throughout Chicagoland
Premarital agreements, which are also commonly referred to as “prenuptial agreements” or “prenups,” are contracts that couples may enter into prior to marriage that determine how their assets and property will be divided in the event the marriage ends in divorce or the death of a spouse.
Postnuptial agreements are contracts that spouses enter into after they are married and are effective instruments for couples intent on remaining married, but who also want to establish how their assets and property will be divided in the event of divorce or death.
The attorneys at the Law Offices of Jonathan Merel, P.C. are experienced in negotiating and drafting these agreements. We can help you create a fair and favorable agreement that both you and your spouse can agree on.
