Jeff Goss, Partner and Head of the Estates and Trusts Department provided an article to the Lancaster County Woman May/June 2019 publication on the importance of pre-nuptial agreements. Jeff writes, "You have become engaged and have just entered one of the happiest phases of your life. In the midst of the excitement of planning your wedding it may seem awkward to say 'honey, in case we ever up getting divorced...', but it is the reluctance to bring up financial affairs during this blissful time that can prove costly later in life." Jeff provides information on why a couple needs a pre-nuptial agreement, who needs it, and how to properly get one.
