PREMARITAL AGREEMENTS

Premarital agreements, also known as “prenuptial” agreements, or “prenups” for short, are the more common form of marital agreement and are signed by couples before they enter into their marriage. This involves both couples fairly and accurately disclosing their possessions entering into the marriage as well as their wishes and best interests in the event of a divorce in order for the agreement mediator to create an agreement that protects each of their best interests in the best possible manner.

Marital agreements can help you protect possessions such as:

  • Real estate/homes/vacation homes
  • Cars
  • Pets
  • Inheritances
  • Heirlooms

POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENTS

Postnuptial agreements function almost identical to their prenuptial agreements with the exception that they are signed after a marriage certificate has already been signed. A family lawyer can also assist you in the creation of one of these documents to help protect each of your best interests in the event that you wish to dissolve your marriage.
