Prenups, property division and high asset divorce

Whether you are planning on getting married or are already in the middle of a divorce, prenuptial agreements could affect you and your partner in various ways. At the law offices of Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, we know how stressful this can be for people in Massachusetts, from Boston to all other cities in the state. Furthermore, this can be especially true for those with a high net worth.

If you are going through a high asset divorce, your prenuptial agreement could have a significant impact on the distribution of marital property. While property division can be challenging for anyone who is separating from their marital partner, it can be much harder for those with sizable assets and far more at stake. On the other hand, you may be working through issues related to the signing of a prenup. For example, you may be unsure of what your prenup should include or your spouse may not know whether or not they want to sign the contract. However, if you carefully assess your options, your chances of a more favorable outcome may improve.

In court, the interpretation of your premarital agreement can have a huge impact on marital property and the way that assets are divided between you and your spouse. Because of the potential long-term effects of a court decision, it is imperative to present your case well.
