New Jersey Legal Agreements

A legal agreement is a binding contract voluntarily entered into by two or more parties regarding their rights and obligations. Here are three of the most common types of legal agreements divorce and family law clients are likely to encounter.

Retainer Agreements:

This legal contract establishes the attorney-client relationship. The retainer agreement is required, along with the initial retainer fee, before your family law attorney can commence work on your case. Learn about the retainer agreement prior to signing this legally binding contract.

Prenuptial Agreements:

Thinking about drawing up a prenuptial agreement before you get married — or have you already been asked to sign one? A prenuptial agreement can be an effective way for both parties to protect their financial interests and assets in the event of a divorce. Find out when a prenuptial agreement should be considered, the benefits of having one drawn up and what specifically can be included to protect your future.

Post Nuptial Agreements:

If you have financial concerns after the wedding or during the course of your marriage, a New Jersey Post-Nuptial Agreement (also referred to as a mid-marriage agreement) may be right for you. Such a document can prove to be beneficial in many situations, such as when one spouse suddenly starts making a great deal of money, or another spouse stops working. Learn more about what post-nuptials cover in New Jersey — and how they differ from prenuptial agreements.
