Connecticut law states that anything a member of a married couple owns or inherits during the marriage may become marital property in a divorce. This means if you receive an inheritance from a family member after you are married, whether it is a piece of property or a financial asset, half of it may automatically go to your spouse if you get divorced.

We know life can take unexpected twists and turns, some good and some bad. A postnuptial agreement can protect assets you inherited, acquired or realize you need to keep separate, after you have gotten married. The Prince Law Group can assist you with the planning and drafting of this agreement.

Our attorneys will review your financial situation and make recommendations as to what you can and should protect as separate property. Beneficiaries of trusts and other forms of generational wealth may find that they are required to have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement in place as part of the trust's requirements.

But Doesn't That Mean I Expect To Get Divorced?

No one goes into a marriage expecting to get divorced. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are important tools that couples can put in place as part of their overall financial plan. Knowing the property and assets that you would need to keep in the event of a divorce are protected can give you the freedom and confidence to invest more fully in your marriage now, and in the future.
