A premarital agreement is a contract between future spouses that is created prior to the marriage. The agreement is negotiated, drafted, and signed before the wedding and lays out how certain issues will be handled if the marriage ends in divorce. The agreement becomes effective as soon as you get married.
A premarital agreement may address property division issues such as:
- Ownership of property or land
- Retirement accounts
- Art and other valuables
People choose to enter into premarital agreements for a variety of reasons. Oftentimes, these agreements make sense for people with substantial assets, complex estates, businesses, or children from previous relationships. An agreement can provide peace of mind and allow you to resolve issues while you are still happy and in love, rather than when you are on bad terms.
A post-marital agreement is similar to a premarital agreement but is entered into after the wedding. Although the couple negotiates and enters into the agreement after they are married, it works in a similar way and provides the same protections as a premarital agreement. The agreement must be voluntarily entered into or it could be ruled invalid. Additionally, there must be full disclosure of the property and financial obligations of each party.
