Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Lawyers in Quincy, MA
Serving Couples Throughout Greater Boston
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are legal contracts entered into by couples to determine how their assets and debts will be divided in the event of a divorce, separation, or death. They can also establish alimony responsibilities.
A common misconception about these contracts is that they are one-sided, favoring the party with the most significant financial resources. In reality, these documents are designed to protect both parties in the marriage. They can address property division, alimony, and other economic issues that can arise if the marriage ends.
Both sides must review and agree to these agreements to be valid. In the event of a divorce, they will save both parties from undue legal fees, time, and stress, as complex financial issues will have been pre-determined.
Our Quincy prenuptial and postnuptial agreement attorneys design customized agreements at Davis Law Group. We do not believe in one-size-fits-all all documents. Instead, we will get as creative as necessary to build a document to fit your needs.
Before we create your agreement, we take the time to interview you. We learn about your assets, your family, and your goals for the future. Perhaps you are creating an agreement to protect assets for children from a previous marriage. Maybe you have a specific property you want to ensure is protected. Whatever the case, we can design a document to achieve your goals.
You can arrange a consultation with a Quincy prenuptial and postnuptial agreement attorney by contacting us online or at (617) 752-6216.
Overview of Massachusetts Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements aim to protect individual assets, manage financial risks, and reduce potential disputes in case of divorce. They can benefit those with substantial assets, those entering a second marriage, or those with children from previous relationships. They can also protect those marrying someone with significant debts from being held responsible for them.
These agreements are essentially the same, except that prenuptial agreements occur before marriage and become effective upon the wedding, while postnuptial deals arise after the marriage and are effective immediately.
These agreements are beneficial because they depend upon complete financial disclosure between the parties, help protect individual assets, define economic rights and responsibilities during the marriage, and reduce potential disputes and legal fees in the event of divorce.
Excellent client support. Very helpful, generous, and knowledgeable. He took the time to listen to my concerns and offer his expert advice. If you're unsure who to use, you found them.- Deb
Highly recommend to anyone in need of legal help. Jay, Annie and the team are super friendly and helpful. I can personally guarantee, from experience, they will bend over backwards and do everything within their power to get you the results you deserve.- Jamie
Jay and his coworkers were extremely helpful and fought for us as clients. We are so happy with his practice and will most definitely be calling him again if need be!- Paige
Jay was outstanding in his service and professionalism. He is a saint in my book.
He worked with me after hours and had no hesitation to put in the extra effort to review my documentation and my case in detail without charge. I would hands down recommend contacting him for legal matters.- Kelly
I have used the services of Davis Law Group a number of times during the past 20 years and found them to be an extremely professional and caring law firm. Specifically I have used them for real estate transactions and for estate planning, wills, and healthcare proxies, with Jay Davis and Maryanne McGonagle as my primary attorneys. Whereas some law firms use boiler plates and treat clients as transactions, Jay and the firm have cared about my specific needs as a client and customized to those needs. I highly recommend this firm.- Rob
I had an all around great experience working with Ryan Medeiros and Davis Law Group. Highly recommend! Ryan was knowledgeable and accessible, and knew what it would take to get the job done. I will definitely be using them again!- Mark
Three generations of my family have trusted Davis Law Group with our legal needs and they have always done right by us. Since April I have been working non-stop with Mary Anne McGonagle and Jay Davis to navigate and probate an excruciatingly-complicated estate. Both Mary Anne and Jay have gone out of their way numerous times on my behalf and have vigorously protected my interests in the face of some fairly significant headwinds. I could not be more thankful for, and appreciative of, their attention and the care they have demonstrated for my family.- Bryan
I benefited a lot from a recent consultation with Mary Anne. She is very knowledgeable in the area of landlord-tenant law, but what expressed me the most is her ethics. Although it was a free consultation, she still took it very seriously and spent the time to read my files prior to the call. During the session, she made complex legal issues easy to understand, analyzed my case and offer very good advice. She also worked very hard and communicated with me even after her normal work hours. What she did was truly above and beyond my expectation.- Anonymous
