In an environment where nearly half of all marriages end in divorce, many individuals are now considering a pre-nuptial agreement to assist in dissolving a marriage in an equitable, fair fashion even before they are married. Ideal for business owners and career-minded individuals, the specialists in family law at John J. Ready & Associates can work with you to determine if your specific situation would benefit from an agreement of this type.

What type of people can benefit from a pre-nuptial agreement? For couples where one of the members has significant estate planning issues, a pre-nuptial agreement can protect generational assets in case of divorce. Other clients who have experienced success in business simply want to have the option to continue their lifestyle should a marriage conclude. For those who have a family business, a person who is an entrepreneur, holds real estate or has concerns about heirs and dependents, having an agreement drafted and in force before the marriage just makes sense.

The professionals at John J. Ready & Associates will work with you to determine what type of assets you have and how much protection makes sense. We can structure an agreement that can include financial holdings that were brought into the marriage as well as how to handle any assets that are purchased during the marriage itself. This can make ending a marriage much easier and less stressful for both parties should the union not work out in a favourable way. This is increasingly important for those people who participate in a family business and who need the assurance that their livelihood would not be impacted due to a divorce.
