How Can a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement Help You?
Prenuptial agreements establish the property rights of each party if the marriage ends in divorce. They are legal contracts that list the assets and debts each person has prior to the marriage. In order for the agreement to be legally binding, there must be full and fair disclosure of all assets and debts from each party when the document is drafted.
Postnuptial agreements are very similar to prenuptial agreements, but they are created after the marriage. A postnuptial agreement can also be used to protect any new assets you acquire during the marriage.
You can use prenuptial and postnuptial agreements to address issues such as:
- Property division rights in the event of divorce
- Spousal support/alimony rights and obligations
- Maintaining assets you brought to the marriage
- Protecting assets for children in blended families
- Protecting one spouse from the debts and obligations of the other
- Child custody, visitation and child support rights and obligations
