The act of marriage creates some very important legal and financial implications for individuals. There are a variety of reasons why Prenuptial Agreements and Postnuptial Agreements may be right for your family.
A Prenuptial Agreement is a contract that is entered into prior to the marriage, where the parties delineate their respective expectations should a divorce or other events occur.
Similarly, a Postnuptial Agreement is a contract that is entered into during the marriage.
The idea in both situations is the same: to fix the rights and expectations of the parties, which may include the protection of assets or the payment of spousal support (alimony).
