Yes, judges in Brooklyn and elsewhere in New York have recognized the rights of same-sex spouses since 2011, and now that gay marriage is legal nationwide, you have every right to expect identical treatment to any other marriage out there.
This includes when you want to have a prenuptial agreement written to protect your interests in the event your marriage doesn’t work out.
A prenuptial agreement is a contract between the two spouses stipulating how assets will be divided and how spousal support will be handled in the event of divorce, as well as how property will be allocated should one spouse die.
When correctly drafted, a prenup includes statements of net worth from both parties, and reflects each spouse’s particular interests. While each spouse will need independent legal counsel, the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino are some of Brooklyn’s most experienced matrimonial and prenuptial agreement lawyers.
