Trusted Nebraska Attorney Assists with Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Experienced lawyer drafts and enforces marital agreements in the Lincoln area

Many couples choose to create and enter into a prenuptial agreement before they wed. Working out the terms of a potential settlement in advance — especially if your joint and separate assets are complex and/or considerable — allows you and your significant other to decide how you wish your assets and debts to be divided in the event of a divorce or legal separation. Attorney Roger Cox works with people like you in the Lincoln area and throughout Nebraska to create fair and enforceable legal agreements that protect their interests.

Thorough Nebraska counselor advises clients on protecting their assets

Even if you and your fiancé are working on your agreement as a couple, it is important that each of you has his or her own family law attorney to represent advise you regarding legal requirements that must be satisfied for a prenuptial agreement to be valid and enforceable and what should or should not be included in a prenuptial agreement to protect your rights. You will also want to make sure that your agreement is drafted correctly so your interests are served and protected in the event that you do get divorced or become legally separated in the future.

These agreements specifically address matters that may include:

  • Who gets what assets in the event that you decide to end your legal union
  • How finances and assets will be handled during the marriage
  • Spousal support terms
  • Any business ownership issues
  • What to do with your estate in the event that one of you dies
  • The handling of gifts, inheritances or trusts
  • Benefits and disability and insurance coverage

A prenuptial agreement can also specify how different circumstances in the marriage may result in different outcomes during a divorce. 

Skilled attorney handles challenges to prenuptial agreements

Premarital agreements are legal contracts that are enforceable by law if they comply with specific legal requirements and can prove challenging to contest later. In the event that you signed an agreement and now wish to challenge it, I can advise you on your options and likelihood of success.

Grounds may exist for challenging a prenuptial agreement if any of the following occurred:

  • Your spouse did not adequately disclose all of his or her material assets or debts
  • You were unfairly pressured into signing the agreement
  • You were deceived into signing the contract

If necessary, I can litigate your matter in court to seek enforcement of the terms of a prenuptial agreement that a soon-to-be ex wants to contest. My firm also represents clients who wish to contest the validity of their prenuptial agreement
