Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements are agreements entered into between the parties before the marriage begins; while postnuptial agreements are entered into during the marriage. They are similar in nature and both concern the agreement of the parties on how assets and debts will be divided in the event of a divorce.
These types of agreements are generally used by people who want to protect their assets and keep them from becoming community property during a marriage. They are also commonly used when one of the parties to a marriage agrees to give up his or her career in order to raise a family and they wish to protect themselves financially in the unfortunate event that there is a divorce in the future.
These versatile agreements can be tailored to fit your specific circumstances and needs, and provide you with a sense of comfort and security by establishing beforehand how marital will be divided in the event that the marriage fails. These agreements can save married couples from unwanted litigation and costly legal fees.
If you are considering entering into a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, you should consult an experienced attorney to advise and assist you in protecting your interests by drafting and defending, or perhaps attacking, the validity of these types of agreements.
