Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements

Do I need a Marital Agreement?

Pre-nuptial Agreement

A Prenuptial agreement is a contract made before a marriage and is a binding agreement governing how property and debt division will be handled in the event the parties to the marriage later divorce. Most commonly created  when one party to the marriage has significant property or income or one spouse has considerable debt.  We can advise you regarding the pros and cons of prenuptial agreements and assist you in negotiation and drafting such agreements if you choose to put in in place before you marry.

Post-nuptial agreement

A Post-nuptial agreement is a contract made after you are married but before you divorce. If circumstances arise after parties are married, such as one spouse is to receive a benefit or inheritance, or wants to start a business endeavor; a postnuptial agreement can define and characterize the nature of certain assets and debts in the event of a divorce.
