“Love may be priceless but divorces are not.”
We know that no one enters into marriage, making a life-long commitment, believing that their marriage will become one of the approximately 50 percent of marriages in the United States that end in divorce. For certain individuals, planning to protect your assets and your family in the event of a divorce makes sense.
Just like life insurance protects your family in the event of your death, a prenuptial or postnuptial can protect you and your family in the event of a divorce. The McCabe Russell team will help you draft a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement that you can rely on to protect you in the future if you need it.

Prenuptials and Postnuptials Save You Stress and Heartache
Even in the healthiest of relationships, finances are one of the most controversial topics to discuss. But financial matters are easier to discuss and resolve in a strong relationship, rather than in a crumbling one. Prenuptials or postnuptials may be beneficial where:
- An individual has already achieved financial success;
- Either spouse is commencing what they anticipate will turn into a successful career;
- Either spouse currently owns all or part of a business;
- Either spouse plans to earn an advanced education/certification during their marriage;
- Either spouse has received, or expects to receive, significant assets in the future, including an inheritance;
- One spouse is entering the marriage with a significant amount of assets or debt; or
- Either spouse has children from a prior marriage or relationship.
When creating a prenuptial agreement, the couple should ensure that all the terms of the agreement are constructed in a fair and legally binding manner, including making sure that there is full and fair disclosure of all of the existing assets and debts.
