Prenuptial Agreements and Postnuptial Agreements Print This Page
Before You Get Married – Prenuptial Agreement
A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into by a couple prior to their marriage. The purpose of the agreement is to define the couples’ rights and obligations if they should decide to get a divorce. Typically, couples who have prenuptial agreements that file for divorce, often spend less time and financial resources fighting in court since the agreement generally resolves the division of the couples’ assets, liabilities and financial support obligations.
During Your Marriage - Mid-Marriage Agreement and Post-Nuptial Agreement
A mid-marriage agreement is a contract entered into by a couple during the course of their marriage. The purpose of a mid-marriage agreement is similar to the purpose of a pre-nuptial agreement; specifically, the mid-marriage agreement will generally resolve the division of a couple’s assets, liabilities and financial support obligations in the event of a divorce. A couple may enter into a mid-marriage agreement for a variety of reasons.
