A marriage is stronger with a good legal foundation

Whether you’re engaged and getting married soon, or have been married for several years, it's easy to get swept up in the excitement of your new life together with your partner. You're building your careers, setting up your home, and dreaming of your future together. It's a time of great joy and optimism. However, as you start this new chapter in your life, it's important to also think about the future and plan for the unexpected. 


As you embark on this new chapter in your life, it's important to start thinking about the future and protecting the people and things you love. Prenuptial agreements, taxes, finances, and estate planning are not the most romantic topics, but these are crucial steps to ensure that you and your spouse are on a good path and that your loved ones are protected in the event of unforeseen circumstances. As much as we hope that we will live long and healthy lives, accidents and illnesses can happen, and it's important to be prepared.

At Lopes Law, we understand that married couples face unique legal challenges. Whether you're newlyweds starting your life together, or long-time partners planning for the future, our team is here to help. We provide personalized legal support to ensure that your marriage and future are protected.

Tax Support for Married Couples: Married couples may face complex tax issues, especially if they have joint assets or file taxes jointly. Our team can help you navigate tax laws and maximize your deductions, saving you time and money.

Contract Support for Married Couples: From prenuptial agreements to cohabitation contracts, we help married couples create legal agreements that protect their interests. Our team can assist with reviewing and negotiating contracts to ensure that your rights are protected.

Employment Law Support for Married Couples: If you and your spouse work for the same employer, you may face unique employment law challenges. We can help you navigate workplace disputes and protect your rights, ensuring that your professional lives do not interfere with your personal lives.

Estate Planning for Married Couples: Estate planning is essential for married couples to ensure that their assets are protected and their wishes are carried out. Our team can help you create wills, trusts, and other legal documents that ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes.

Surrogacy: Life doesn’t always work out the way we plan it, and some couples may need to consider surrogacy as a family planning option. We can assist you with drafting surrogacy agreements that protect your legal rights and those of your surrogate, as well as navigating the complex legal issues surrounding surrogacy, such as parentage and custody. Our goal is to ensure that your surrogacy journey is as stress-free and seamless as possible, allowing you to focus on building your family.

Family Planning: We have experience working with clients in non-traditional family structures, such as same-sex and LGBTQIA+ couples, or any couples considering adoption. Our team can also assist with legal issues related to assisted reproductive technology, including in vitro fertilization and embryo donation. Whatever your family planning needs may be, we are here to help you navigate the legal process and protect your rights.


Marriage and planning your life with someone else can be a beautiful thing, but often comes with its own set of legal challenges. Let us help you navigate this exciting and rewarding journey with confidence and peace of mind. At Lopes Law, we are committed to helping married couples navigate these challenges and protect their future together.
