Despite any negative misconceptions you may have, marital agreements are an incredibly pragmatic solution to any number of concerns or issues you may face in the future. Regardless of the details of you and your future spouse’s financial status, prenuptial or postnuptial agreements are actually a positive step to take before you sign your marriage papers.
A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can help you understand the following and more:
If you are getting married, a prenuptial agreement can provide you and your soon to be spouse with enlightening information. To have a prenuptial agreement both parties must fully divulge all assets, debts, and other finances in good faith. This can allow for better financial planning throughout your marriage. Postnuptial agreements operate in a very similar manner to prenuptial agreements, just that the agreement is reached after you are already married. It is important to note that marital agreements do not determine any child support rights.
It is important to have a focused legal guidance when preparing a postnuptial or prenuptial agreement.
