A prenuptial agreement is exactly what it sounds like: it is a written contract between two parties that defines what will happen if their martial relationship ends. There are many reasons why a prenuptial agreement is desirable. People with a high net worth, people with large inheritances, people that own businesses, and people who have children and grandchildren before the marriage may be good candidates for a prenuptial agreement.
A family lawyer that creates prenuptial agreements must be not only well versed in the issues of family law, but also understand business and tax issues, and have an clear understanding of contract drafting. Oregon courts look very carefully at these agreements, and they must be written correctly to be sure they are in compliance with the law. At our firm, we understand all of these issues and are able to advice and draft prenuptial agreements for you.
