Protect Your Rights Through A Prenuptial Or Postnuptial Agreement
As a couple is planning to spend their lives together, it is important for them to take into consideration the effect that marriage laws will have on their property and their finances.

The Benefits Of These Agreements
Prenuptial agreements are not necessary for every couple, but can help many protect their personal assets by making a clear record of any premarital property or assets that should not be subject to division by the court if a couple were to divorce.
Most often, prenuptial agreements are used by individuals with significant assets or income, which they want to protect. An agreement may outline property division and spousal support restrictions, which will be enforceable in the event of a divorce. Prenuptial agreements are also beneficial when clients have children with someone other than their future spouse.
If a couple is already married, they can still achieve these benefits through a postnuptial agreement. A postnuptial agreement can provide protection and support to couples at any stage of their marriage.
