Why You Need a Premarital and Postmarital Agreement
A premarital or postmarital (also often called prenuptial/prenup or postnuptial) agreement spells out what will happen if there is a divorce. They can avoid public court battles if the relationship does not last.
As a successful business owner entering a marriage, you may want to put in writing certain protections. A premarital agreement may also be beneficial when a second marriage will blend your families together.
A postmarital agreement is a contract made between spouses. It may control many issues from property division to the amount of temporary or permanent support. If there have been significant changes in your lives (a career change) there might be a need for a postmarital agreement. It may also replace the out-of-date terms in a premarital agreement.
