Marriage & Prenuptial Arrangements

Shiryak, Bowman, Anderson, Gill & Kadochnikov LLP is also here to help with any legal issues leading up to the marriage, such as in prenuptial agreements. While a prenuptial agreement may seem unromantic, we see it as smart financial planning that ensures your financial matters are handled to your wishes rather than the state’s wishes. Deciding whether a prenuptial agreement is right for your marriage is a very personal decision that requires a very serious discussion with your spouse to be. The financial side of marriage can be as complicated as planning the wedding, but with our firm’s help, you can get married with the peace of mind in knowing that if a death or divorce were to ever happen, your financial matters are already taken care of.
