Prenuptial / Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial / Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are growing in popularity as couples marry or remarry later in life and have often accumulated significant assets that they wish to protect or plan for based on changing family and marital situations.

A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement usually outlines arrangements for division of property between a couple should the marriage end with divorce. Similar in nature, the prenuptial is prepared before the marriage and the postnuptial is prepared after the marriage has taken place. It is important that there is full disclosure of assets and that both spouses have enough time to review the document and consult with their own attorney. There may be nuances that you may not be aware of such as the parties may not agree to alimony in a postnuptial agreement where you and your spouse continue to live together. Like all binding legal agreements, it is advisable to have an attorney review your situation and prepare a comprehensive and defensible agreement for you.
