Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

A properly structured prenuptial agreement that was reached after clear communication by both parties can be the foundation for peace of mind before and during a marriage.

Do You Need A Prenuptial Agreement?

Prenuptial agreements can be a crucial document in the right situation. Some common examples of situations where a prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement can be beneficial include:

  • When a couple wants to protect individual assets that they are bringing into the marriage
  • When a couple has children from previous marriages and want to clearly define inheritance
  • When a couple shares significant marital assets and wants to clarify who is entitled to what in the event of a divorce

Ultimately, the decision on whether a prenuptial agreement should be pursued is up to each couple. Some couples who do not fit any of the descriptions above still prefer to have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement in place due to the peace of mind that comes with clarifying these complex issues.

Our attorneys can work with you to make sure you understand your rights and work to protect your interests in a prenuptial agreement. If your circumstances change or you are going through a rough patch in your marriage, we can assist you in creating a postnuptial agreement to lay out your rights or modify an existing prenuptial agreement.
