150 Years of Combined Experience Working for You

At Wisselman, Harounian & Associates, we are ready to help you with any issue related to matrimonial or family litigation. Are you thinking about establishing a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement? Many unmarried couples are reticent to write up prenuptial agreements because they are afraid to talk about divorce. In reality, prenuptial agreements do not necessitate divorce. However, divorce is a prevalent issue in American culture and couples looking forward to marriage should not turn a blind eye to this reality. Similarly, postnuptial agreements may be useful for couples looking to file a divorce.

Postnuptial agreements may deal with a variety of issues, including:

If you have decided that filing for a divorce is the best thing for your future and the future of your family, you may have to reach a child custody agreement with your spouse, too. Although with your own well-being, you and your former spouse will have to take the livelihood of your children into serious consideration. Child custody agreements can be heartbreaking. In fact, reaching a child custody agreement may the most difficult part of the divorce process. Remember this: The child's best interest will decide the custody agreement - not what you or your former spouse want, or what you think is best for you or your spouse.
