Prenuptial Agreements

Palatine Prenuptial Agreements Lawyer

Protecting what you value is not only practical, it can also save you from heartache down the road should conflict arise. Establishing a prenuptial agreement allows you to identify certain financial matters and outline your intentions for those assets you may have prior to your marriage.

The Law Offices of James M. Kelly has been assisting couples with domestic relations cases for more than 23 years. Located in Palatine, Illinois, our law firm represents individuals and families throughout Illinois with many family law issues revolving around the beginning and ending of relationships.

Help From a Proficient Schaumburg Marriage Contract Attorney

Palatine prenuptial agreements attorney James M. Kelly has helped couples entering into their first marriages as well as their second and subsequent marriages draft prenuptial agreements designed specifically to address certain assets and debt each party is bringing to the marriage.

Governed by the Illinois Premarital Agreement Act, this written agreement is meant to protect certain valuable items a party owned prior to the marriage and can give direction to what should happen to the items in the event of a divorce, death or in other circumstances. These matters often include:

  • 401(k)s
  • Brokerage accounts
  • Real estate
  • Marital property
  • Heirlooms
  • Inheritance
  • Privately held businesses

While we believe that it is always important to protect what is important in your life, it may be more helpful to couples in some situations, including marriages where one or both parties have significant assets, one or both parties have children from a prior relationship, or couples entering into a second or subsequent marriage.

Our team at The Law Offices of James M. Kelly understands the negative views some couples have about prenuptial agreements, and we want to address any concerns you have. We can help you recognize the benefits of a prenuptial agreement and work with you to draft a completely customized agreement prior to your marriage.
