Prenuptial Agreements Make Divorce Less Complicated

Prenuptial agreements got a lot of attention in recent weeks as news broke that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, the Hollywood celebrity couple on the verge of getting a divorce, did not have a prenup. This means that the divorce could be extremely complicated – and very costly – for the parties involved.

Gabrielle Moss, a lifestyle editor for an online publication, recently wrote about her own decision to get a prenup in advance of her marriage. The article Moss wrote, provocatively titled “7 Reasons Getting a Prenup Can Be a Feminist Act,” explored some of the benefits of getting a prenup. For Moss, a prenup is a “feminist act” because it guarantees her independence and ensures that she will not be financially dependent on her husband in the future.

Of course, a lot of people believe that they will never need a prenuptial agreement because they simply don’t expect to ever get divorced. But that’s the thing about divorce – no one entering into a marriage expects their marriage to end. Yet it still happens, often due to unforeseen circumstances that are beyond the control of the parties.

A prenuptial agreement is a legal document that is signed by a couple prior to getting married. The contract typically establishes ownership of each party’s individual assets and lays out the groundwork for division of assets and property in the event that the couple eventually gets divorced.

One of the big advantages of a prenup is that it simplifies the legal process for a couple going through divorce proceedings. The divorce laws in New Jersey are complex and the divorce courts can be difficult to navigate. On top of that, the divorce process is often stressful, time consuming and costly. Anything you can do now to make the divorce process a little easier later on – should you decide to get divorced – has significant advantages.

Client Reviews
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Robyn made the divorce process bearable by making sure I was ok every step of the way. She was a fighter when she needed to be and compassionate the rest of the time. The thing I liked best about her is that she was encouraging when I needed to get my end of the work done. She was reasonably priced and worked hard to get my case settled. I have since recommended her to 3 other friends who have retained her services. Ana Z.
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Graziano and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
After a divorce, my ex-husband was not keeping up with his scheduled child support payments. With the help and knowledge of Robyn Flynn, I was able to resolve this issue. Being a single mother of three children, Robyn Flynn made me a priority. I felt respected by her always keeping me informed and encouraged. She was not only my lawyer, but a friend during a very stressful time in my life. I would never use another attorney other than Robyn Flynn and highly recommend her to my friends as a trustworthy, professional and experienced lawyer. Anna H.
