Planning For Life Transitions

Life transitions often require legal planning. It is important to get experienced advice regarding these issues, to protect yourself and your loved ones from unnecessary risk and expense. At Marcus, Gould & Sussman, LLP, we provide knowledgeable representation in key areas of life transition planning, including:

  • Prenuptial agreements: Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can protect your assets in the event of a divorce or death. These agreements are often established by people entering into a second or subsequent marriage, or those with children outside of the marriage. We know how to draft and negotiate prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that carry out our clients' wishes and can be enforced by court action if needed.
  • Special needs planning: Special needs planning can significantly improve the quality of life of a disabled individual. Such planning often involves establishing a special needs trust, so that the beneficiary can obtain financial resources without losing eligibility for government benefit programs such as Medicaid.
  • Business succession: Business succession is the process of transferring business assets from one generation to the next. Who will own the business? How will decisions be made during and after the transition? These are key questions that our attorneys will help you address.

Our attorneys will work with you personally to craft a legal strategy that suits your needs. We are a trusted source of guidance for individuals and families in Westchester County and throughout the New York City metropolitan area.
