Family Legal Questions and Answers

Prenuptial Agreement

Massachusetts

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

How does a prenuptial agreement affect taxes?

As a couple planning to get married, my partner and I are concerned about the tax implications of a prenuptial agreement. We are wondering if entering into a prenuptial agreement will have any impact on our tax obligations or if there are any specific tax considerations that we should be aware of. We are seeking advice from a lawyer who can provide us with guidance on this matter.

Briana C.

Answered Apr 25, 2023

A prenuptial agreement does not in itself affect how taxing authorities will treat the spouses. But it can create promises between the spouses toward one another. For example, it may create a promise to file jointly, or specify that they are making no such promise. And it can create a promise by each spouse to pay the other back for any taxes the other pays on his or spouse's behalf. The decision whether to file jointly or separately does have tax implications with taxing authorities.

Medical Agreement

Virginia

Asked on Sep 29, 2022

My daughter who is 20 left the house with a man who is 15 year her senior am I obligated to had over all her personal documents

She does have some medical issues that needs medical appointments one for her eyes and heart when she was born I had German measles and she needs constant care

Michael T.

Answered Oct 11, 2022

If she's fully competent, then at 20 years old she is entitled to make her own decisions about who she has relationships with. If you have documents that she needs to engage competent medical care, then, yes; she should have those documents. In theory, if she needed them badly enough, she could sue you for possession of the documents (it's called a replevin lawsuit). Withholding documents about her medical care in order to force her to obey you regarding her relationship choices could cause you legal trouble down the road. Not to mention the cost it will have to your personal relationship with her. You're better off in the long run making sure she gets her needed medical care and being there to support her if and when her relationship sours. Trying to hold her documents over her is not a good idea, either from a legal standpoint or a human standpoint. Good luck and I wish you the best.

Postnuptial Agreement

Texas

Asked on Apr 23, 2023

How long does it take to create a postnuptial agreement?

My spouse and I have been married for 8 years and have recently decided to create a postnuptial agreement. We have discussed our intentions for the agreement, but I am unsure how long it will take to complete the process. I am looking for an estimate of how much time it will take to create and finalize the postnuptial agreement.

Faryal A.

Answered Jun 6, 2023

I can prepare a postnuptial agreement for you in 1 day. All you would need to do is add details of your assets. To execute it, you need to sign it before a notary to have it notarized. Feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss it further. Thank you.

Daughters dads mom keeps harassing and threatening to call CPS and has called CPS on me to be able to see my daughter. I have given her ample chances to fix her mistakes cuz with her she won’t listen to the parent she does and takes things upon herself. Need this stopped please

David H.

Answered Mar 18, 2022

Hello, my name is David hatch I'm a Michigan licensed attorney. I have several years of experience with parenting time and custody issues. That appears to be what you're asking about. It would be helpful first to understand more about the situation. Like if there is a divorce decree and find some time order or any other type of order related to the children in the situation you're dealing with. Once I understand the situation I can help you determine a course of action.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
