Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements are agreements entered into between the parties before the inception of the marriage. Postnuptial agreements are agreements entered into between the parties 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 at some later time.
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 event there is a divorce at a later date.
These types of agreements can be very versatile and tailored to fit your specific circumstances and needs. They can provide you with a sense of comfort and protection by establishing beforehand how things will be divided in the event that the marriage fails. These agreements can also save the parties unwanted litigation and the resulting costly legal fees in the event that the marriage fails by having already established what will happen in such an event.
