Over 25 Years of Legal Experience in Family Law
Prenuptial agreements are agreements entered into before marriage. Prenuptial agreements reflect the intentions of both parties after full disclosure, and typically involve the division of property and support (alimony) obligations with respect to each party in the event of a divorce. Postnuptial agreements are the same as prenuptial agreements, except they are entered into after the marriage. Most people view prenuptial agreements in a negative light, but they can, in fact, be quite beneficial to both parties, and in some cases, can lead to a happier marriage.
How a Prenuptial Agreement Can Be Helpful
Often times, especially if a good situation turns bad, issues regarding property division, asset and debt distribution, and support obligations can make a bad situation worse. A prenuptial agreement helps both parties to know exactly — or have a very good idea — what would happen if the marriage doesn’t work, thereby avoiding anxiety during temporary marital spats that every couple has at one time or another.

A prenuptial agreement is also an optimal instrument for protecting an individual who has significant property or assets. Most people understand that events can change; people can discover they are not as compatible as they first thought, or couples can sometimes drift off in different directions. A prenuptial agreement can help protect your assets in the event a marriage doesn’t work out. For many individuals, this is extremely important if they have children from a previous marriage.
