What Are The Requirements For Prenuptial Agreements In New York?

Recently, the invalidation of a prenuptial agreement involving millions of dollars made the news in New York.

What Kind Of Property Is Excluded From Equitable Distribution Under New York Law?

A Buffalo Division of Property Attorney can advise you which of your assets are separate, negotiate a fair settlement or protect your assets through litigation.
