ANNULMENT

An annulment treats the marriage as if it never happened; however, unlike a divorce, there are certain criteria that must be met in order to seek an annulment. Some of the factors in determining whether you can seek an annulment are fraud, misrepresentation prior to the marriage, refusal or inability to consummate the marriage, and/or concealment of an addiction are just a few reasons. Some people believe that annulments will be available only if they have been married for a short time; however, the duration of a marriage is not a factor in the determination of whether an annulment is available. Even if you have been married for a while, you may still be eligible for an annulment if even one of the numerous elements for an annulment are met.

SPOUSAL MAINTENANCE
Spousal support or alimony is often awarded in cases where one spouse has put his or her education or career on hold in order to raise the parties' children while the other climbed the career ladder and achieved a higher income. It is used to keep the spouse living the lifestyle they had been accustomed to prior to going through a divorce. The amount and duration of alimony depends on several factors, including:

  • The length of the marriage;
  • The age and the health of each spouse;
  • The ability of each spouse to be self-supporting;
  • The income of the primary breadwinner; and
  • Standard of living during the marriage.

PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENTS

It is a common misconception that only the wealthy need a prenuptial agreement. There are, however, many other circumstances that call for an agreement in writing prior to a marriage. If you have children prior to the marriage, expect to acquire money or property in the near future, have a future successful business, own real estate, or are expecting any kind of financial windfall, you could benefit from a prenuptial agreement. With a prenuptial agreement, you can control where your property goes and avoid having a judge or court determine how your property may be separated or divided. Obtaining a prenuptial agreement does not mean that you are contemplating divorce, it merely means that you are being smart about your future.

WILLS
A lot of people don't like thinking about making a will; however, if you have family or friends that you want to be taken care of after your death, it is a necessary thought. When you spend your life thinking about work and your family, it can be tough to properly plan for your wishes after death. If you don't take the time to make a will, your family will be forced to deal with a messy and lengthier probate process. The amount of your assets is not relevant. If you have a smaller estate, you have all the more reason to protect it properly for your heirs. If you own a home, life insurance, stocks, savings accounts, retirement funds, and any other kind of property, you need a will. We can help you put your wishes in writing so that the state doesn't have a chance to decide where your assets go. You worked too hard during your life to leave it in their hands. Have us prepare your will today and take control of the things that are most important to you.
