Effectively Preparing a Variety of Agreements to Protect Our Clients
As a family lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, Doug Warlick understands the full spectrum of financial issues that are likely to arise during a divorce or legal separation. Accordingly, he can prepare prenuptial agreements to address these issues, thereby reducing the likelihood and severity of future disputes.
A prenuptial agreement will not resolve all issues related to a divorce - just some of the financial matters. A prenup can limit the amount of alimony that either spouse is entitled to receive, and outline a plan for property division. If one spouse is a business owner (or partial business owner), a prenup can prevent the business from developing into marital property, which would make it potentially subject to division in a future divorce.
Doug Warlick also prepares postnuptial agreements for clients who are already married. Much like prenups, postnuptial agreements can resolve potential property division concerns while people are on good terms, to limit potential litigation in the event of separation.
Finally, not all couples are allowed to marry, and other couples are not interested in marriage. To protect the rights and interests of unmarried couples, we prepare cohabitation agreements. These agreements can outline the legal rights and responsibilities of each person with regard to shared property.
