New York law allows couples to enter into agreements before, during and after marriage. Prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements can protect property and establish spousal support in the event of a divorce. At the time of divorce, agreements can resolve all issues, including property division, support and child custody. After divorce, when circumstances change, agreements may be needed to modify a divorce stipulation or trial decision. All such agreements must be skillfully crafted so that they will achieve a party’s goals. Pat works closely with her clients to negotiate and draft favorable and effective agreements.
