Prenuptial Agreements in Massachusetts

While the joyous period before a wedding is not a time when most couples consider a potential divorce, doing so can stave off the possibility of costly litigation in the event of divorce; it can also provide engaged couples with the confidence of knowing that everything will be “okay” should the marriage fail.

Generally speaking, a Prenuptial Agreement is a contract entered into by an engaged couple that addresses the allocation of assets and potential alimony if the marriage ends in divorce. In Massachusetts, a well-drafted Prenuptial Agreement can help you: 

+  Protect assets acquired before marriage

+  Protect assets inherited or gifted from parents and others

+  Protect business interests

+  Limit exposure to alimony (spousal support)

Having drafted and negotiated more than 30 Prenuptial Agreements in 2019 alone, Attorney Summers and his team of Boston Prenup Attorneys are intimately familiar with such tools and their intricacies. His expertise is regularly sought after by high-net-worth individuals, including senior executives, entrepreneurs, and those that stand to inherit substantial assets in the future. He is also a staunch advocate for the “lesser monied” party, working to ensure that any waiver of marital rights is fair and reasonable.


“Tyler provided the first draft of the prenup agreement within two days. He was very prompt in making any amendments as necessary and provided the re-drafts the same day. Tyler also has a great network and was able to recommend a good reviewing attorney for my fiancé.”
