Prepare for the Future with a Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement is not just about preparing for divorce. Prenuptial agreements help you and your fiancé talk about situations that may arise in a way that is calm, diplomatic, and agreeable. We can help make this situation more comfortable for you by showing you the benefits of a prenuptial agreement and helping you understand how one can actually help make your marriage healthier.

Prenuptial agreements can cover expectations for many situations, including:

  • Division of property you acquire during the marriage
  • Any property you individually bring into the marriage
  • Co-investments you may make
  • Debt brought into the marriage
  • Children brought into the marriage
  • Alimony rights
  • The terms of wills, trusts, and life insurance policies

What is a Postnuptial Agreement?

If you entered your marriage without a prenuptial agreement, you may later decide you would like to draft a postnuptial arrangement. Postnuptial agreements can cover the same elements of a prenuptial, the difference being that they are drafted after a marriage has begun rather than before.

When writing up your "postnup" you will likely address joint property and the terms for property division in the event of a separation. Other aspects you can discuss include family businesses, what to do in the event of a spouse's death, and terms for alimony.
