Prenuptial Agreements in South Philly

When planning your wedding the last thing either of you wants to think about is what happens if you eventually divorce. But if either of you owns assets you want to set aside for children from a prior relationship, or have partial or sole ownership of a family business, having a “prenup” safeguards those assets in case of divorce.

We can help you negotiate a prenuptial agreement that is fair to everyone involved and enforceable should the worst happen. Certainly, hope for the best - but be prepared for the worst.

What People Say About the Divorce Lawyers of Schwartz Law

“I am very grateful to have Lee as my lawyer. He has more than 30 years of professional experience and knowledge that he uses to help me step-by-step as I go through the most difficulty time of my life. He is not only a professional expert but also a trustworthy and thoughtful person. I strongly recommend him.”
“Lee has handled several legal matters for me over the past three decades. He is always well prepared, thoughtful, and well informed about the applicable law. His advice is impeccably precise and strategic. Above all, his ethics are among the highest of anyone I’ve met – attorney or otherwise – and he is a profoundly good, active listener who does not come to a discussion with preconceived notions of where the conversation ought to go. I’ve met few other attorneys in my professional or personal lives who so capably can transform a problem into a solution. I plan to turn to him in the future when confronted with legal problems, and I heartily recommend him to others as well. He’s really that good!”
“I worked with Lee as a paralegal for several years and would recommend him and his services to anyone in need of them. He is thoughtful, caring, and very straight forward. When you are in need of a family law attorney, it is typically a time of great stress. Lee works hard to remove that stress factor and provide representation that will always be in your best interest, providing sound, reliable advice and service.”
