Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Assistance Drafting And Enforcing Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements provide individuals and married couples a way of protecting assets and defining ownership rights outside of the confines of community property laws. A prenuptial agreement is prepared and signed by both parties prior to the marriage. It takes effect upon the marriage. A postnuptial agreement is drafted and signed by both parties during the marriage. It is generally an agreement that is not entered into in anticipation of a divorce but rather an agreement through which married persons want to define their rights in certain property.

The Role A Prenuptial Or Postnuptial Agreement Plays In Divorce

In addition to the ability to clarify each spouse’s financial responsibility during marriage, a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can make the divorce process easier by laying out what each partner’s property rights will be after the divorce as well as provide protection from the other spouse’s pre-marriage debts.
