Prenuptial Agreements

Tulsa Prenuptial Attorney

Prenuptial agreements, sometimes referred to as premarital or antenuptial agreements, are contracts the parties enter into prior to marriage, which specifies certain rights. When entering into a marriage certain precautions sometimes need to be taken into account. For example, if one of the parties is a great deal wealthier than the other a prenuptial agreement may need to be signed. Another situation may be a family heirloom that needs to stay with the original family, so a prenuptial agreement needs to be executed to avoid a stressful situation down the road. Unfortunately, the circumstances surrounding a prenuptial agreement can be very cold and unromantic, however, sometimes a necessary form of protection.

Generally, an agreement must be voluntary and entered into without fraud, overreaching, duress, or coercion. If the agreement is not fair and just, there must be full disclosure.
