Protecting Your Interests Through Proper Planning

As much as we would like to consider the institution of marriage as a purely romantic proposition that will last a lifetime, the reality of U.S. divorce statistics differ with this popular perspective. Marriage should be a loving, emotional bond, but it should also be regarded as a financial and business partnership. A marriage contract can protect the parties, if things go wrong.

At Yavitz & Levey, LLP, our Chicago prenuptial and postnuptial agreement lawyers have over 60 years of combined experience helping individuals protect their assets. Our attorneys have extensive experience in not only preparing premarital and prenuptial agreements, but also they have participated in contested trials at both the trial court and appellate court levels involving the enforcement and validity of premarital and prenuptial agreements.

To learn more about protecting your future financial objectives, contact our Illinois family law attorneys online, or call 312-924-4400 to schedule a consultation to discuss your situation. We serve clients throughout Lake County, Cook County, DuPage County, Will County and McHenry County.
