The Pre/Post Nuptial Attorneys

A Marital Agreement That Protects Both Spouses

Couples use prenuptial and postnuptial agreements to manage their marriage’s financial elements. Used by people marrying for the first or second time, the document gets all financial cards on the table and gives both people peace of mind.

Prenuptial Agreements

Some people see prenups as planning for divorce before the wedding. But since nearly half of U.S. marriages end in divorce, perhaps planning ahead is prudent. A prenup doesn’t, after all, mean the couple’s anticipating a divorce. It does force couples to examine their full financial picture. Prenups can preserve inheritances and protect the financial well-being of children from a previous marriage. And if the spouses do choose to divorce, it eliminates potential battles over finances and assets.

Postnuptial Agreements

Postnuptial agreements (or postnups) work the same way as prenups with just one difference. Couples sign this legal contract after they’ve already married or entered a civil union. Also dictating the allocation of assets and affairs should a couple divorce or separate, the document can also include details about child support, alimony, or incurred debts.
