Pre-Marital and Post-Nuptial Agreements
Prior to marriage, couples may form pre-marital agreements, also known as pre-nuptial agreements, that establish how issues such as division of property and spousal support would be handled in the event of a divorce, separation, or death of one of the spouses. A pre-martial agreement is particularly useful where both spouses have gone through prior difficult divorces or one spouse has significantly more assets than the other. A pre-marital agreement can provide both spouses peace of mind and reduce some concerns prior to entering marriage.
