Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Couple Signing Prenuptial Agreement

Prenuptial Agreements

It’s a common misconception that couples who enter into prenuptial agreements are anticipating a divorce. The reality is that approximately 50 percent of marriages in the United States end in divorce, and prenuptial agreements serve as a sort of insurance policy that acts as a safeguard, just in case.

Plan Without Litigation

What are they?

Prenuptial agreements are contracts that govern how you and your spouse will divide assets if you get divorced in the future. Also, things like spousal support, child support and marital property are all defined within prenuptial agreements.

A prenuptial agreement allows you to ​set the ​financial ​terms of a potential divorce before the marriage, ​ rather than relying on the legal system​ afterwards​. ​Divorced couples who​ do not have a prenuptial ​agreement and cannot come to a property division agreement end up in litigation, ​which can be a ​lengthy, costly process.

Postnuptial Agreements

Postnuptial agreements are similar to prenuptial agreements, except they’re negotiated after a couple is legally married. They don’t necessarily signify that a couple is gearing up for a divorce. However, they do signify that each spouse takes their financial future seriously and would like to protect it, just in case.

Financial Rights

What Are They?

Postnuptial agreements allow each spouse to protect their separate assets in case of a divorce. These agreements are intended to address financial rights and obligations, as well as legal responsibilities for each spouse, which will simplify the divorce process should it ever occur.
