Prenuptial and Post-nuptial Agreements
It may seem that you are planning for a divorce before your marriage begins, however understanding that a marriage is about business in addition to love will help you understand the benefits that creating a prenuptial agreement can bring. A prenuptial agreement is signed before a couple gets married and helps set expectations regarding the division of property, finances, and other concerns in the event that the marriage was to end in divorce. If done correctly, a prenuptial agreement helps parties with a smooth and simple divorce process, and saves them money in the end.
On the other hand, while not as common as prenuptial agreements, agreements about how to divide assets can be made after the parties are married but before a divorce, this is called a post-nuptial agreement. Post nuptial agreements can also be effective tools in protecting the rights and assets of the parties in a marriage. Post-nuptial agreements can be entered into at any time during the marriage.
