Under Rhode Island law there are binding agreements that can be made between spouses either before, during or after a marriage. These agreements can help both parties declare their rights and obligations to prevent future disputes and to protect their personal interests. At the law office of Christopher E. Friel, we are experienced in drafting and modifying these contracts as well as providing representation in the event of a contractual dispute.
Whether you have significant assets or you simply want to protect your financial interests at the outset of a marriage or in the event of divorce, a prenuptial agreement can be very helpful. It allows both parties to clearly define their rights and obligations before a marriage is finalized. While a prenuptial agreement cannot make any determinations about custody or child support, it can create legally binding obligations involving division of property and, under certain circumstances, alimony determinations.
