What are Premarital (Prenuptial) Agreements?
Premarital agreements (also called a prenuptial agreement or just a “prenup”) are contracts between two people before they marry.
They define the financial parameters of the relationship by setting out each party’s assets, debts and property rights before the marriage. They establish procedures and guidelines for deciding the issues in the event of a divorce or death.
Premarital agreements can promote more effective communication about finances and property between prospective spouses and help reduce conflict in the event of a divorce.
What are Postnuptial Agreements?
Postnuptial agreements are contracts between already married persons created after marriage.
They can reduce conflict over finances, assets, and children in a marriage, thereby promoting peace and harmony in the marriage.
