Postnuptial agreements; what you need to know

Without a doubt, the word “prenup” has made its way into many homes in the United States thanks to a string of high profile celebrity marriages. A postnuptial or postmarital agreement is a legal document designed for couples who are already married and is signed after the union has taken place.

The long arm of the IRS

In case you didn’t know, the IRS has a criminal investigation division. And they are decidedly proud of their well-earned reputation as a law enforcement agency. As you may have guessed, the division focuses on traditional tax cases, but has also worked in the areas of tax-related identity theft, money laundering, public corruption, cybercrime and terrorist financing.

Rather, they will refuse the help you are trying to provide and insist on continuing to live their life how they want to - not recognizing the danger they are in.

What's the basis of your marital contract?

Like the bouquet at your wedding, the images of marriage are flowery.

Will your relationship be defined the same way in 20 years?

Why would a will or trust be contested?

If you've ever listened to the morning news or scanned the paper while having your coffee, you're likely familiar with the concept of contesting a will. One or two high-profile estate plan challenges usually make the news each year, most often those of celebrities, businessmen, socialites and other similarly wealthy people.
