About This Course
This CLE lecture is a sophisticated look at the process of drafting complex prenuptial agreements for high net worth individuals. It explores the basic ideas and concerns that must be handled in terms of a prenuptial agreement.
The lecture describes the three basic areas which must be covered in a prenuptial agreement; the difference between marital and separate property; issues relating to agreement regarding maintenance, as well as estate issues. Learn innovative techniques as to how to handle these issues in a manner so as to protect the assets of a moneyed spouse, while still empowering and providing protection for the non-moneyed spouse. The basic idea is that it is better to negotiate an agreement while the parties are “in love” rather than “in hate.” The interests of both parties are explored and solutions to problems are presented. There are no boilerplate answers. This lecture provides an approach to drafting prenuptial agreements on an individualized basis, relating to the facts and situation of each particular case.
