Pre-Marital and Post-Marital Agreements

A premarital agreement allows a couple to tailor a future plan based on practical needs and preclude financial disagreement or misunderstanding before beginning a marriage. Premarital agreements establish what assets are kept separate. They protect spouses from debts incurred prior to marriage and in the event of separation, divorce, or death, define how assets will be divided among the spouse, children, and other family members.

For couples with more than one marriage, a premarital agreement can resolve complexities arising from prior commitments and responsibilities that carry over from previous marriages involving ex-spouses and children.

A post-marital agreement has the same legal effect as the pre-marital agreement, except that the agreement takes place after the parties have married.
