At the Law Office of Carol Weinstein Boileau, our principal lawyer understands that agreements are about relationships as well as finances. Attorney Carol Weinstein Boileau is meticulous and far-seeing in her preparation of premarital and postnuptial agreements, and also caring and diplomatic as she helps a client foster workable agreements.
Reasons to Have a Premarital Agreement
If you are carrying debt into a marriage, you may want to protect your intended partner from taking on that liability as marital debt. If you are marrying later in life you may want to protect your financial security. If you are embarking on a second marriage with adult children or grandchildren or young children, you want to make sure they are financially cared for no matter what happens to you or to the marriage.
How to Know if Your Agreement Is Legally Valid
Your agreement is only as good as your attorney. Massachusetts courts may ultimately have to determine whether premarital, postmarital or co-habitation agreements are fair for both people involved in the agreement. The courts also seek to determine whether both parties fully disclosed all assets and debts that were brought into the marriage. Attorney Carol Weinstein Boileau has the skills and experience to elicit comprehensive information and sound agreements related to debts, assets, inheritances, businesses and other financial matters.
