Agreements – Prenuptial vs. Postnuptial
Prenuptial agreements, signed before two people marry, and postnuptial agreements, signed after marriage, are contracts that determine what happens to each party’s individual assets and any joint assets in the event of divorce, legal separation or death. While the contents of these agreements can vary, they typically include provisions regarding property division and spousal support. If you are considering entering into one of these agreements, a skilled lawyer can help you to properly document your wishes.
