We offer legal services for various categories of family law, including:
Marriage and Prenuptial Agreements
You may wish to enter into a prenuptial agreement before you are married, which defines the assets that each partner enters the relationship with. Defining the financial status and belongings of both parties allows for some financial freedom in the event of separation or divorce.
When you decide to live together with your partner without getting married, then drawing up a cohabitation agreement helps to protect your rights as an individual. Defining individual interests and assets, and safeguarding them, is a useful way avoid conflict in the future.
If you and your partner are planning to separate before you file for divorce, a separation agreement can provide clarity on the issues of custody, access, property division, child support, and spousal support.
Separating from your partner or family can cause friction about property ownership. The family lawyers at Bronson Jones & Company LLP can work to secure your property rights.
