Prenuptial Agreement / Premarital Agreement Attorney
Prenuptial agreements are contracts, and the law of contracts applies to their application and interpretation. However, Ohio law has special rules when it comes to contracts between persons in a confidential relationship with each other, such as spouses. If you are thinking about making a prenuptial agreement, it is important to hire an attorney who understands what kinds of things a prenuptial agreement can cover, and how it should be written in order to be enforceable at the time of divorce. An improperly written prenuptial agreement will be unenforceable at the time of divorce. The attorneys at Harris & Engler understand what terms will be enforceable and unenforceable and have experience in drafting ironclad prenuptial agreements.
Ironclad Premarital AgreementsWhat makes a prenuptial / premarital agreement ironclad? One that is enforceable. The law in Ohio prohibits contracts between married people, and it renders contracts made under duress or undue influence voidable. Prenuptial agreements often get into that grey area of duress or undue influence. There are a number of different factors that must be done by the book to make a premarital agreement enforceable when it counts.
