A common misconception is that a premarital agreement is simply a tool to resolve disputes in the event that an upcoming marriage ends in divorce.  However, premarital and postnuptial agreements are instruments that can play leading roles in estate and succession planning, as well. 

Many people are familiar with the multiple estate planning tools to handle and manage financial concerns at the late stages of life.  However, most people don’t talk about these items when they get married – but they absolutely do when they get divorced and at that point, it is often too late to avoid messes.  This program will cover how premarital and postnuptial agreements can be used as financial planning tools. A roadmap for how marrying couples can organize not only their finances but also their estate plans – on the front end of their lives, or at least on the front end of their marital relationships.

This program will also cover an example of how a business owner, a family that contemplates succession issues or the passage of wealth from one generation to the next, can utilize premarital agreements to both minimize marital conflict and also to protect family wealth in the event that a divorce or an untimely death occurs. 

This program is being presented by the Family Law and Estate Administration/Estate Litigation Practice Groups of Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti, LLP.  Our presenters, Kerri Cappella, and Rob Weinberg have a combined 75 plus years of experience in addressing family law matters throughout Western Pennsylvania and beyond.
