What is a prenuptial agreement?
A prenuptial agreement is a legal document between two people before they marry. It outlines how assets will be distributed in the event of divorce, separation, or death. The document can provide stipulations for property rights and all other aspects related to the marriage but cannot negatively impact child custody, support, or visitation.
What is a post-nuptial agreement?
A post-nuptial agreement is very much like a prenuptial agreement. However, it is created after the couple marries. It is intended to help settle the couple’s assets and affairs in case they separate or divorce.
Why should I have a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement?
Pre-and post-nuptial agreements help to ease the stress, and emotional impact of divorce, separation, or death of one partner as all aspects of property and asset division are already spelled out in a legal document.
