Pre Post Nuptial Agreements

Marital Agreements Can Be Extremely Beneficial

Marital agreements allow parties to reach an accord regarding assets, saving them time and money if a divorce should occur in the future. However, it is crucial to have an experienced attorney examine your specific situation if you are considering a prenuptial or postnuptial marital agreement. An attorney can help you draft an agreement that best protects your assets and your interests.

Prenuptial Agreements: Stipulations And Allowable Provisions

A prenuptial agreement is made before your marriage to resolve issues of support and property division if the marriage ends in divorce or by the death of a spouse. To be considered valid, prenuptial agreements must be in writing and signed by both parties. It must be fair and entered into without undue influence or coercion.

Issues that can be addressed in a prenuptial agreement include, but are not limited to:

  • Alimony and spousal support
  • Division of marital property
  • Division of nonmarital property

Postnuptial Agreements: When They Are Necessary

A postnuptial agreement is made between you and your spouse when married. It may be necessary to create one to protect an individual’s assets if they receive a large inheritance while married.
