Marriage contract Lawyer / Attorney Massachusetts

Marriage is indeed a beautiful thing. Unfortunately, according to the numbers we so often hear, 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce. Marriage contracts are used to minimize the disagreements that can arise between a divorcing couple. Additionally, they can help soothe the tremendous emotional stress that usually comes along with the unfortunate demise of a marriage.

A Marriage contract is a contract entered into by two people before they marry. Marriage contracts most commonly deal with issues of property and support to which each party may be entitled in the event of divorce or death of one of the spouses. These agreements help curtail uncertainties about how a court might divide property and decide spousal support if the marriage fails.

Divorce is a sad and expensive process. Judges possess broad discretion on how to divide marital property and determine spousal support (alimony). However, if the parties have a valid Marriage contracts then the court must follow the terms of the agreement in its final determination.

Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer & AttorneyMarriage contracts prove particularly important when a person marries for a second or third time, and especially when he/she has children from a previous marriage. Inheritance laws dictate that in the absence of a will, the property automatically passes to a surviving spouse; as a result, the children from the first marriage may be left with nothing. Marriage contracts assure that certain assets or personal belongings are passed (as a whole or in part) onto the children or grandchildren of prior marriages rather than to a current spouse.
