Premarital and Post-Marital Agreements

For many couples today, a pre-marital agreement, also known as a prenuptial agreement, is a way to protect each individual’s rights and assets prior to getting married. A pre-marital agreement serves the purpose of safeguarding your interests legally, affording you protection in the event of a future divorce.

A premarital agreement is a contract entered into by future spouses, and takes place prior to marriage. The agreement is negotiated, drafted and entered into so that you can know what the future will hold, should the relationship end.

For many couples, a premarital agreement tends to ease their peace of mind. Individuals with highly valuable assets, complex estates, or those with existing responsibilities to children and former spouses particularly can benefit from premarital agreements, which can eliminate any worry involved with protecting these things in the future.

Similar to a premarital agreement, a post-marital agreement, also known as a post-martial agreement, is a contract. It is negotiated, drafted and entered into by spouses, although in the case of a post-marital agreement, this process is done after the parties are married. It holds the same value and provides the same comforts in knowing that one’s assets are protected for the future.
