Minneapolis Antenuptial Agreement Lawyer
Couples who have signed an antenuptial agreement (sometimes called a prenuptial agreement or premarital agreement) often look to that agreement to define the terms of their divorce, including property division and spousal support.
Antenuptial Agreements that Work for You
At the downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, law office of Kathleen M. Newman Family Law, we take action on behalf of individuals who find that their antenuptial agreement is a source of discord during their divorce. We work aggressively to contest prenuptial agreements that our clients feel should no longer apply and, on behalf of our clients, to defend prenuptial agreements that should be upheld.
How Minnesota Law Views Antenuptial Agreements
Many couples are surprised to learn that under Minnesota law, an antenuptial agreement, also known as a prenuptial agreement, must not only be fair at the time it is created, but it must also be deemed fair at the time of the divorce. If your circumstances have unexpectedly and significantly changed since you signed the document, the agreement may no longer be valid. For instance, you may:
- Have children now that you did not anticipate when you signed the agreement
- Have been diagnosed with a serious illness or disease
- Have undergone a significant lifestyle change such as becoming a stay-at-home mom or dad
At our law firm, many of our cases have involved couples who had children not anticipated at the time the parties signed the antenuptial agreement, people who have experienced debilitating illness during the marriage, and others who have experienced lifestyle changes not anticipated at the time of marriage, like becoming stay-at-home parents.
Whether you need to contest the current applicability of a premarital agreement or you want to defend the validity of one, you can count on our Minneapolis antinuptial agreement attorneys for aggressive and determined representation.
