Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with Excellent Service,
Iam sorry to hear what your husband has done and I can only imagine the devastating effect it has had on you. If you want to be protected from a property standpoint andyour husband iswilling to sign an agreement, then you can have a lawyer prepare something called a "Property Settlement Ante Nuptial Agreement". "Ante Nuptial" means "After the Marriage". Many couples sign this type of Agreement and it is 100% valid and the Courts will enforce it, should it be necessary to take the other party to Court. But, what the Court likes to seeand has less of a problem enforcing these Agreements, is where each party states in the Agreement that they have been advised by their own lawyer before signing the Agreement. Therefore, it is suggested and advisable thhat each of you consult with a different lawyer and state that in the Agreement. Everything will be fine,
