Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer Portland

Family Law Attorneys in the Greater Portland Area

If properly drafted and agreed to under the right circumstances — prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are an excellent way to protect your assets and prevent disputes in the event that “things” don’t work out as planned.

Questions about prenuptial agreements or post-marriage contracts? For answers and experienced lawyers who can help you draft these agreements so they’ll be enforceable — call us at (206) 957-7273.

At Helzer & Cromar, we help people in the Portland metropolitan area create prenuptial agreements and postnuptial marriage contracts that are strong enough to hold up in court and protect our clients’ rights and assets, as intended.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, postmarital contracts and agreements between domestic partners can address a number of important issues, including those that involve:

  • Children from a previous marriage or relationship
  • Unique assets such as artwork or jewelry
  • Existing businesses, real property, investments including retirement accounts, stocks, and possible hidden assets
  • Assets or debts brought into the marriage
  • Inherited property and gifts
  • One spouse’s support of the other through a graduate or professional school degree program

For a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement to be enforceable, these things need to happen: Each person should have his or her own attorney; each person must make a full disclosure of his or her property, assets and debt; neither person should be under duress of any kind when he or she enters into the agreement.

Our lawyers know the Oregon laws that govern these agreements and know how various courts and judges have scrutinized these contracts in other cases. We know what they look for and to avoid possible pit falls. We can start using that knowledge to your advantage today.
