Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements are agreements that address the property that parties may bring into marriage, and outline when and how marital property can be created during the marriage. These agreements will outline how financial issues will be addressed in the case of a divorce. It is important to note that custody cannot be addressed in a pre- or post-nuptial agreement. Most people are familiar with the pre-nuptial agreement, which is entered into before marriage, whereas the post-nuptial agreement is entered after the marriage, addressing divorce-related issues. Pre- and post-nuptial agreements can eliminate the time and expense of a contested divorce by predetermining both of the parties’ rights and obligations should their marriage come to an end. If you have any questions about the advantages or disadvantages to pre- or post-nuptial agreements or about your particular situation, feel free to call the office at any time to schedule a consultation.
