About George A. Reilly

George Reilly has nearly 35 years of experience as an attorney. As a family law practitioner at several area law firms, he has focused on helping families resolve matrimonial and child custody and support issues.

George is also well-versed in a wide variety of other legal practice areas including real estate and land use, estate planning and administration, and business law.

    Premarital Agreements

    The bride and groom (and often parents and grandparents) may wish to settle many aspects of their financial affairs between them before they are married. The parties may agree on the treatment of property owned at the time of the marriage by each party, property that may be inherited during the marriage, gifts received, joint property purchased during the marriage and income that will be earned during the marriage. The parties can also make plans for their interests in each other’s estates. There are many other issues which can be addressed in a prenuptial agreement to avoid stressful decisions in the parties’ marriage.

    Postnuptial Agreements

    In a relatively recent development in Connecticut law, postnuptial agreements between married couples are clearly enforceable as long as certain disclosure requirements are satisfied. Such agreements can resolve the same issues as premarital agreements and other issues that may arise during the marriage over concerns about property interests and estates, among many other issues.
