Post & Pre-Nuptial Agreements

No couple wants to think about divorce before they are married, but a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can be a useful tool that will protect both spouses. 

Contracts signed prior to or during marriage can protect a variety of interests. A prenuptial agreement (prenup), for example, can be used to designate certain property, such as a family business, as separate (and not marital) property.

Postnuptial agreements (postnup), which are entered into during a marriage, serve a similar purpose These forms, like prenups, designate certain assets and property in the event of a divorce. Couples who are marrying later in life can especially benefit from a marriage agreement, as well as forward-minded couples who seek financial security in life. Terms in these marriage contracts can impact child support, alimony, and child custody if a divorce occurs.
