Our Prenup Process
Premarital agreements shouldn’t be a taboo or dreaded subject with your partner. At Hightower Reff Law, we believe prenups strengthen relationships. That’s why we make the process of negotiating and signing a prenup clear and compassionate. If you’re considering drafting a prenuptial agreement, we recommend the following steps:
- Have a conversation with your partner about making a prenuptial agreement.
- Talk about your finances, including the debts and assets you have.
- Hire a quality attorney for each spouse.
- Draft an agreement that considers property, child support obligations, debt responsibility, businesses, retirement benefits, joint bank accounts, and more.
- Sign, date, and make a copy of the agreement for each party.

We’ll be here to represent you in all cases related to your prenuptial agreement.
