For years, couples who signed prenuptial agreements were seen as somehow admitting that they had little faith that their marriage would last. Though that sentiment still exists somewhat, most people now recognize that prenuptial agreements are useful tools that benefit couples greatly if they do eventually get divorced. This is especially true in the case of second marriages, where a party seeks to preserve his or her children’s rights to inherit their property.
Based in Union and Cedar Knolls, the law offices of Wolfenson & Ashkenazi, P.C., maintain a vibrant family law practice, part of which involves drafting, reviewing and litigating premarital agreements. Founding attorney Andrew M. Wolfenson has over 75 years combined experience and understands how an effectively and properly prepared prenup can serve the best interests of each party. He also knows how to challenge these agreements in court if a client feels that a previously executed agreement is invalid.

Why Might A Prenuptial Agreement Be Useful?
A well-written prenup makes the property division phase of a divorce easier and more efficient. In fact, the process of negotiating a prenuptial agreement can itself be healthy for the marriage because it requires an honest discussion about finances and eliminates potential sources of mistrust.
Morris County lawyer Andrew M. Wolfenson has written and reviewed premarital agreements for clients who have varied goals and reasons for seeking these agreements:
- Ensuring that separate property remains separate and does not get divided in the event of a divorce
- Ensuring that children from a previous marriage receive an inheritance
- Outlining how family-owned business assets and debts should be handled if the marriage ends
