Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements

What are prenuptial and postnuptial agreements ?

A prenuptial agreement and postnuptial agreement are both marital contracts that generally make financial divisions of a couple upon their separation or define the terms of spousal/child support. A prenuptial agreement is entered into before the commencement of a marriage and a post-nuptial agreement is entered upon the commencement of a marriage.

Such agreements can be advantageous because you will always have the knowledge of how your property will be distributed or how much money will be allocated to spousal or child support, should your marriage terminate. There are a number of reasons why a person may want to consider a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement.

Pre-nuptial and Post-nuptial agreement considerations include:

  • You or your future spouse have children from a prior relationship
  • You or your future spouse have significant assets or debts
  • You or your future spouse own a business
It is essential that you obtain a competent attorney to assist you in setting the limits of the pre/post-nuptial agreement drafting an enforceable pre or post-nuptial agreement which the court will recognize as legal. If you find that you and your partner no longer want to abide by the agreement we can also assist you in voiding pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
