A wedding is often the happiest day of a person’s life, where families and friends come together to celebrate the start of a beautiful new relationship. However, for many couples, failing to plan for the future can soon turn that beautiful union into a disaster. Let the law office of Catherine H.

With more than 25 years of experience in family law matters, Catherine has the knowledge to help you set up a marital agreement that can safeguard your future in the following ways:
Catherine knows that these agreements may not work for every couple, but believes that providing quality legal advice about the financial aspects of marriage can be beneficial to any couple. Take the first step by learning more about these agreements below.
A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into before marriage that sets the terms of a divorce settlement in the event of divorce. In Pennsylvania, prenuptial agreements are binding on issues of property division and alimony and can affect child support arrangements.
With the majority of marriages today ending in divorce, a prenuptial agreement may be an option to consider if you are thinking about getting married or remarried. Remember, a marriage is not only the union of people, but also the union of finances, property and responsibilities. No matter how happy your marriage is, there may be assets or property that you want to go to your family or to children and grandchildren from a prior marriage. Let Catherine use her family law expertise to safeguard your financial future.
A postnuptial agreement is an agreement that is entered into after marriage, but before the couple has sought a divorce. Much like a prenuptial agreement, couples enter into postnuptial agreements to safeguard assets or property in the event of divorce or death before their spouse.
