Marriage is a wonderful thing. However, there are times when a marriage has reached its end and the couple wishes to divorce. This can be a very ugly time in both lives, and the lives of those close to the couple (especially children). Not only does the splitting couple have to divide assets, but the couple also has to work out custody issues, and other legal matters. One way to help protect yourself is to get either a prenuptial agreement or even a post-nuptial agreement is one way to help protect yourself and your assets. A contract can also be helpful if you and your spouse seek the assistance of a surrogate when starting your family. By having a contract, you can protect your family from any ugly disputes that may arise. Seeking the advice of an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney before marriage, during your marriage, or when you plan to file for divorce can help you achieve a favorable outcome.
