remarriage

When you decide to get remarried, you might want to consider a prenuptial agreement.

As family law attorneys, our blog tends to focus on the negative side of domestic issues — divorce, child custody disputes, and fights over marital property and alimony.  With that in mind, today we want to spotlight some positive news:  The Wall Street Journal reports that older adults are remarrying with greater frequency.  The U.S. Census Bureau reports that nearly 1 in 5 adults have been married at least twice.

If you are contemplating a second (or third, or fourth) marriage, you may wish to consult with a family law attorney prior to tying the knot again.  Especially if your first divorce was contentious, a pre-nuptial agreement this time around could save you future aggravation if the new marriage does not work out.  Middle-aged and older couples have special financial concerns that can be incorporated into a pre-nuptial agreement drafted by a skillful attorney.   Attorneys Alexis Miloszewski and Jessica Smith are experienced in advising clients contemplating marriage.  Contact us today at FamilyLaw@jsdc.com or at (717)520-4400 to schedule a consultation.
