Due to references in popular culture (and possibly personal experience) most American adults have heard of a prenuptial agreement. These legal tools are used to help set a foundation for marriage and to protect the interests of each individual in the event of divorce. Far fewer Americans are familiar with the legal tool commonly known as a postnuptial agreement, though these contracts are just as potentially valuable and important as prenuptial agreements are.
If you are currently married (either happily or you are contemplating divorce) you may benefit from taking advantage of the postnuptial agreement drafting process. On the most basic levels, a postnuptial agreement functions just like a prenuptial agreement. The only major difference between the two documents is that one is entered into before marriage begins and one is entered into by couples that are already married. The legal team at Klenk Law has extensive experience with drafting postnuptial agreements and would be happy to help you determine whether taking this step would be a healthy move for you and your spouse.
Postnuptial Agreements – The Basics
An experienced Philadelphia, Pennsylvania postnuptial agreement lawyer can help you to better understand how a postnuptial agreement may benefit you and your marriage. If you are contemplating divorce, a postnuptial agreement can help you begin the hard work of determining how you and your spouse would like to divide your marital property and how you would like to behave as co-parents once you are no longer romantically linked. If you are happily married, the process of drafting a postnuptial agreement can help you to refocus certain areas of your marriage, set expectations and work towards goals together with the aid of healthy boundaries. A Philadelphia, PA postnuptial agreement lawyer can help you figure out how to achieve whichever ends are relevant to your unique situation.
You may be wondering if you can construct an enforceable postnuptial agreement without the aid of a Philadelphia, PA postnuptial agreement lawyer. Although independent initiative is an admirable thing, postnuptial agreements are binding documents and should be treated with care. Just as you would not approach significant medical treatment without consulting a doctor, it is generally not a good idea to take significant legal steps without consulting an attorney.

Peter provided outstanding advice and preparation of a will and trusts.
Peter was excellent. He explained everything very clearly and is super friendly. My wife and I originally tried using a lawyer through group legal coverage, but unfortunately the old adage - "you get what you pay for" - applied to the other lawyer, and we decided to go with a real professional.
When it came down to picking the right attorney to handle my affairs, I knew right away it was this firm. From speaking to their secretary to speaking to Peter I knew I was making the right decision. After only a few mins Peter knew right away what I was looking for and handled all my questions professionally and even gave me great feedback that put my mind at ease. All that without even giving a single penny! So of course I hired him! So far so good...
AWESOME LAWYER! Peter Klenk is an exceptional attorney and a very nice person! Today I spoke with Peter about estate planning and was impressed with by his professionalism, cordiality, and attention to detail. I highly recommend Klenk Law for probates, wills, trusts, and other issues germane to estate planning!
Great friendly staff
Tremendous firm with bright, kind and tenacious people. Great representation for our family.
I'm totally satisfied with Klenk Law. Peter has a great legal mind with the personality of the guy next door.
Everything about my experience was a 10+! Peter and his staff made what I thought would be a difficult process easy and understandable. Every detail was handled correctly. No other firm could possibly do better than Klenk Law!
Peter and his staff are very responsive and always willing to help my clients and in a cost efficient manner.
Like another reviewer, I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link, for a question regarding PA inheritance taxes. The question was quite technical and difficult to explain, and the answer was nowhere to be found on the web. Peter grasped precisely what I was asking, and provided a clear, helpful response (with a touch of humor) the very next day.
Answered my question quickly and referred me to a colleague that could handle my problem
Mr. Klenk, quickly understood the circumstances presented and provided clear and concise advice. This advice provided me with the information I required to progress the case to my advantage.
Peter is excellent. I had a very complicated situation with my parents' estate planning and potential Medicaid needs. Peter was very knowledgeable in estate planning matters, able to define the best solution for the situation. Additionally, he was congenial and able to communicate effectively to my senior citizen parents the benefits of estate planning. He earned my trust, and more importantly, my parents' trust in a 45 mins consultation period. Highly recommend Peter. He is very easy to work with.
Peter recently gave a presentation about Wills & Trusts at my employer, and it was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable and provided valuable information to the group. People were very engaged and asked several questions, all of which Peter thoroughly answered. Personally, my husband and I have selected Peter to help us with our estate planning, and he has been very helpful in providing us with all of the information we need to provide a secure future for our family. Thank you, Peter!

I would unhesitatingly recommend him for estate planning.
