After you are married, you are free to come to a reasoned Postnuptial Agreement with your spouse about what would happen if you divorce or if one of you die. If you do not, whether you like it or not, state rules and family court judges write that agreement for you. You are free to opt out of these automatic rules by arriving at an agreement reflecting your values, morals, and beliefs. Your reasoned postnuptial agreement (or sometimes called an Antenuptial Agreement) can reflect your true wishes, rather than the cookie-cutter system the state imposes on those who don’t bother.
Investing in a reasoned, agreement, as to divide assets, should the marriage end in divorce and what rights exist should one person die avoids expensive, devastating conflict. Especially if you have children, any steps that can reduce the disputes in a divorce is a wise investment of time and money. Investing in a Postnuptial Agreement allows a couple to talk about finances, documents agreements and help ensure each person has a complete understanding of the other person’s financial expectations.
We are flexible. We have a Postnuptial Agreement Lawyer who can help you with one or two issues, or we can take on the entire process. Implementing a Postnuptial Agreement’s terms might require signing Wills, creating Trusts or altering beneficiary designations. Unlike other firms, we have a whole department of Estate Planning and Asset Protection Attorneys. Very few practices can provide you that depth of experience.

Peter and his associates made things easy for us.
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 and his associates were a pleasure to work with. He explained the process clearly and provided assistance nearly instantaneously. Highly recommended for trusts-and-estates-related needs!
Fantastic customer service. Very personable and most importantly they provide great explanations of what is required based on your individual needs. Highly recommend Klenk Law for anyone that needs to create a will and estate documents.
I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link for a question regarding a will. While I was expecting only a few minutes, it was a lengthy conversation. He made sure he understood the situation by asking many questions before offering advice. He then went through my options and results of each one. He left it up to me to decide if I wanted to proceed and did not push me toward one or another. His website has very useful information which I definitely researched before I called him. While I decided not to proceed at this time, I feel I had enough information to make that decision. I would not hesitate to hire him should I need to in the future.
